The American Embassy in Stockholm assists in the promotion of strong bilateral ties between the United States and Sweden and plays an active role in public diplomacy, business services, and traditional diplomatic relations.
The mission devotes a large proportion of time to consular matters such as the issuance of visas for travel to the United States and services for American citizens. As Sweden and the United States are important trading partners, considerable effort is also devoted to the promotion of close business and commercial ties.
The interests of the United States and Sweden converge and correspond in many areas. In addition to those cited above, the American Embassy directs its energies to building close ties in economic, commercial, and regional relations.
