Kedutaan besar adalah perwakilan diplomatik yang umumnya berlokasi di ibu kota negara lain, yang menawarkan berbagai layanan diplomatik, termasuk layanan konsuler.
Kepala dari kedutaan besar dikenal sebagai duta besar (bahasa Inggris: ambassador), sedangkan kepala dari komisariat tinggi disebut komisaris tinggi (high commissioner). Istilah kedutaan besar umumnya dapat digunakan sebagai bagian dari sebuah bangunan di mana pekerjaan perwakilan dan pelayanan diplomatik dilakukan. Namun, apa yang dimaksud dengan kedutaan secara tegas ialah delegasi diplomatik itu sendiri, sementara tempat yang digunakan sebagai kantor dan untuk melakukan pekerjaan diplomatik disebut kanselari (chancery).
