  Diplomatic mission - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A diplomatic mission is a group of people from one state or an international inter-governmental organization (such as the United Nations) present in another state to represent the sending state/organization in the receiving state.
A permanent diplomatic mission is usually known as an embassy, and the person in charge of the mission is known as an ambassador.
Under international law, diplomatic missions enjoy an extraterritorial status and thus, although remaining part of the host country's territory, they are exempt from local law and in almost all respects treated as being part of the territory of the home country.
