U.S. Consulate in Hyderabad Opens for Business in Nanakramguda

March 20 (Hyderabad) – The U.S. Consulate General in Hyderabad has opened operations at its new facility in Nanakramguda.

“Today marks a milestone in the U.S.-India Strategic Partnership,” said Jennifer Larson, U.S. Consul General, Hyderabad. “At a cost of $340 million, our new consulate facility in Hyderabad is an investment in the U.S. relationship with India. We look forward to increasing our staff – including visa officers – in order to continue expanding U.S.-India ties in the months and years to come.”

The U.S. Consulate General represents the United States in the Indian states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and Odisha. The U.S.-India relationship in the region spans a wide range of key issues, including higher education and cultural programs, military cooperation, health and environmental issues, and commercial ties. In 2022, Consulate General Hyderabad issued more than 18,000 student visas, while U.S. companies have invested billions of dollars in the region’s tech, defense, aerospace, and pharmaceutical sectors.

Through the Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation, the Consulate works with local partners to preserve historic monuments, while Consulate staff works with local journalists to combat disinformation and expand coverage of climate change. U.S. and Indian militaries also team up for joint exercises based out of Eastern Naval Command in Visakhapatnam.

The U.S. Consulate’s new facility in Hyderabad is located at Sy. No. 115/1, Financial District, Nanakramguda, Hyderabad, Telangana, 500032.

Established in 2008 at the historic Paigah Palace, the U.S. Consulate General in Hyderabad is the first U.S. diplomatic office to open in India since India’s independence. Groundbreaking at the new location in Nanakramguda took place in 2017. Located on a 12-acre site, the new consulate embodies the U.S. State Department’s mission to provide safe, secure, functional, and resilient facilities for U.S. diplomacy. The $340 million construction project included $70 million in local investment and employed a combined workforce of over 1,000 American, Indian, and third-country nationals.
