  • US-Saudi diplomatic relations began in 1948
  • The new US Consulate General will be open to the public for business on September 24

JEDDAH : The US Consulate General in Jeddah is moving to a new consulate compound in Al-Mohammadiyah district on Sunday after being located on Falasteen Street in Al-Hamra district for over 65 years.
The new consulate compound in Al-Mohammadiyah district is close to the new American School building.
US-Saudi diplomatic relations began in 1948 when the US’ first diplomatic mission in Saudi Arabia was located in a traditional house in Jeddah’s old city center, Al-Balad. In 1952, the Consulate General relocated to Al-Hamra district. As Jeddah grew, the city expanded around the Consulate.



The new US Consulate General will be open to the public for business on September 24. The public entrance for all consular services (visas and American Citizens services) is located on the west side of the new consulate on Al-Safa Street. Additional information on the new location can be found here.
