The Consulate General of Sweden in New York was founded in 1843 and is one of two Swedish missions in the United States; the other is the Embassy of Sweden in Washington DC. The Consulate General focuses on consular matters and the promotion of Sweden, including trade, investments, and cultural affairs. It represents Sweden in the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. This district includes three honorary consulates, located in Boston, MA; Jamestown, NY; and Philadelphia, PA. In this district alone, Swedish companies create approximately
​​​​​​​67 100 jobs.

To promote Swedish interests in the Northeast, the Consulate General facilitates exchange between Swedish and US representatives on the state and city level in the commercial, political, academic, and cultural spheres. The aim is to strengthen Sweden’s long-term relations while broadening the reach for Swedish know-how, culture, and perspectives in the US.
The Consulate General prioritizes trade and investment promotion, and Sweden’s position as an innovative leader provides great opportunities for transatlantic cooperation between companies, research institutes, and universities. Sectors particularly in focus include smart and sustainable cities and life sciences. In close collaboration with Team Sweden, the Consulate General seeks to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in line with the UN 2030 Agenda and accelerate the transition toward fossil-free and circular economies.

​​​​​​​The Consulate General also provides consular assistance in a wide range of matters, including issuing passports and certifications, citizenship matters, and applications for coordination numbers. Furthermore, the Consulate General assists Swedish citizens in case of an emergency.
