New Delhi NEC

One of the largest and most active diplomatic missions in the world, the United States Embassy in New Delhi highlights the importance of the relationship between the United States and India, the world’s oldest and the largest democracies, respectively. Each day, the Embassy serves over a thousand consular visitors and hosts American and foreign citizens in pursuit of furthering economic and cultural exchanges. Since the Embassy opened in 1959, the mission has grown dramatically, creating the need to reimagine the historic site and how it serves American diplomacy abroad. In 2015, the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) commissioned Weiss/Manfredi of New York to develop a master plan for the Embassy in New Delhi and to begin the design for new facilities that recognize the site’s legacy while establishing a foundation for the future of Indian and U.S. diplomacy.

Our Chancery has been an enduring symbol of the commitment of the United States to its important relationship with India. I am pleased that the embassy compound will continue to play this role in a bilateral partnership that I believe is as consequential as any relationship in international affairs.

Kenneth I. Juster, U.S. Ambassador to India
