The U.S. Consulate in Adana represents the American people in Turkey’s vibrant and historic southeastern region. Our consular district encompasses 22 provinces, including Turkey’s borders with Syria, Iraq and Iran. Other major cities in this region include Mersin, Gaziantep, Şanlıurfa, Diyarbakır and Van.
The Consulate contributes to the goals of Mission Turkey in several ways: most importantly, we provide protection and services to American citizens in our district, including the processing of passports, birth certificates and other official documents. In addition, the Consulate promotes U.S.-Turkish relations through our work in areas of mutual interest, including education and culture. The Consulate also seeks to enhance trade and economic ties, working jointly with the Foreign Commercial Service and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, both of which have representatives in Ankara.
Furthermore, the United States speaks out in Turkey for enhanced democracy and for the protection of human rights. To advance these objectives, and consistent with diplomatic practice worldwide, Consulate officers follow political and economic developments in the region, meeting regularly with representatives from a wide variety of government and non-governmental organizations.
On this website and those of the Ankara Embassy and Istanbul Consulate General, you will find the latest news about U.S.-Turkish relations, American foreign policy, study in the United States, and visa services.
We at the U.S. Consulate in Adana look forward to a warm and productive relationship with the Turkish citizens and all residents of our district.
