Serving U.S. Citizens in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza
The American Citizen Services Unit of U.S. Consulate General Jerusalem provides information and assistance to U.S. citizens in Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza. U.S. citizens visiting or residing outside these areas are served by the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.
Over 80,000 registered U.S. citizens reside in the areas covered by the Consulate. We are committed to serving all U.S. citizens as efficiently and promptly as possible, and we are constantly working to streamline our processes to make your visit to the Consular Section pleasant and smooth.
The Consular Section is located in the Arnona neighborhood of Jerusalem, near the former Diplomat Hotel, which is now known as the Caprice Diamond Center. The address is 14 David Flusser, Jerusalem 9378322. The Consular Section is served by Egged bus line 78A. Click here to see a map indicating how to reach our office.
