Most foremost country’s Embassies are usually represented in all other major parts of the world. It is worth knowing that embassies of Commonwealth countries will also endeavour to provide diplomatic assistance to those citizens who belong to other Commonwealth countries who are not represented by an embassy in the country they are in, such as Italy.

Although you would hope never to have to find yourself requiring the assistance of the embassy, it might pay to know if your country has one in Venice and where it is to be located. Occasionally however, that need may arise due to unforeseen circumstances such as requiring money to get home for example, and in such instances this is when the embassy comes in as it aims to protect the interests of its nationals.

Most countries have an embassy in Rome or Milan where Italy’s concerned although a few have one in Venice. Where Visa’s are concerned, unrestricted access is given to all EU nationals and limited stays to citizens of the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Canada on provision of a valid passport. Other nationalities should look into where their nearest embassy is prior to travelling.

The British consulate is located on the mainland in Mestre and is open to the public from Monday-Friday between 10am -1pm. France and Germany also has embassies in the city.
