U.S. Citizen Services
The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our passport/visa system. This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or visa at this time. We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.
The U.S. Consulate General will be closed on Monday, July 28, 2014 for Eid Al Fir.
If you scheduled an appointment with the American Citizen Services Unit during that time, the Consular Section has taken steps to reschedule your visit to our office. If you have not received notification of your new appointment time, please contact our office at the following address:
We will make every effort to reschedule your appointment at a time that is most convenient for you.
The Consulate will re-open on Tuesday, July 29, 2014.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
