|Tools for this tag|
An embassy ( Embassy on Wikipedia) is the official office of a country in another country (for example in the capital). This tag is used for embassies, but also for ambassadors’ residences, consulates and other diplomatic facilities.
|name=*||Name of the embassy in the local language, eg. „Embassy of the Russian Federation“ for a russian embassy in the US. You can add names in other languages using a suffix in the name:lg=* key, where lg is the language code of that name (please only add official names and not unofficial translations). See also Multilingual names|
|alt_name=*||Since official names can be difficult and unwieldy at times, it should be considered to add a colloquial name like Norwegian Embassy using alt_name=*. Such an alternate name helps users to retrieve the desired information from the database.|
|diplomatic=*||Specifies the nature of the diplomatic institution (e.g. embassy, consulate, ambassador’s residence, etc.).|
|country=*||Represented country, use ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code (upper case, details below).|
|target=*||Targeted country, use ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code (upper case, details below).|
To add the country code tag it with country=<ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code> (list of all country codes at Wikipedia). For example for the British embassy in the United States use country=GB (please use upper case, lower case is for language codes).
