Due to the lapse in appropriations of the U.S. government for some agencies, the Embassy will be operating in a limited manner until further notice. At this time, scheduled passport and visa services in the United States and at our U.S. Embassies and Consulates overseas will continue during the lapse in appropriations. All consular appointments for December 26 and beyond remain valid. Applicants are encouraged to use www.usvisa-info.com the day before, and day of, their appointment to verify that the appointment is still active. We will not update this website until full operations resume, with the exception of urgent safety and security information.
