Important! You must make an appointment online for all routine U.S. citizen services such as passport application services, request for Consular Report of Birth Abroad, notarial services and questions regarding federal benefits.  Exceptions to the routine consular services appointment requirement will be made on a case-by-case basis for emergency situations only.

You will only be allowed to enter the U.S. Embassy 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.  Upon arrival in the ACS waiting room, applicants will need to take a number ticket and wait for their number to be called.  

Your appointment password is not retrievable.  Remember to write/copy your password from the “Appointment Details" screen in case you need to change or cancel your appointment.  Please be aware that we are unable to retrieve your password for you.
