Message for U.S. Citizens

Routine Consular Services Resume

Full consular services will resume Tuesday, October 31, 2017.  Appointments for consular services will proceed as scheduled.  Emergency consular services for U.S. citizens continue to be available.

U.S. citizens are reminded that rallies, demonstrations and protests may continue during this post-election period.   U.S. citizens are encouraged to monitor local news for updated information.

  • Rallies, demonstrations, and protests may occur with little notice, and even those intended to be peaceful can escalate into violence.  As with all large events, there is also the opportunity for criminal elements or terrorists to target participants and visitors.  You should avoid areas of gatherings, protests, and demonstrations, and exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of any such events.
  • Review your personal security plans, remain aware of your surroundings, including local events, and monitor local news stations for updates.  Be vigilant and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security.
