About us

Welcome to the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, DC.

In August, 2006 the Embassy returned to the banks of the Potomac River when the new Embassy building House of Sweden opened its doors on the Georgetown waterfront as the flagship of Sweden's public diplomacy in the United States. 

The Embassy of Sweden in Washington, D.C. is one of Sweden's largest missions in the world and serves as the official link between Sweden and the United States. Ambassador Karin Olofsdotter, Sweden's first female ambassador to the U.S., took up her post on September 1, 2017. In addition to the Embassy there are approximately 30 Swedish Consulates throughout the U.S.

The Embassy is closed for visitors and phone calls on weekends and official holidays (see link below). In case of an emergency involving a Swedish citizen, please call the Embassy at +1 (202) 467-2600 and follow the instructions. Exhibitions in House of Sweden are open on weekends between 12 pm - 5 pm.
