Consular Update: Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) Operations

To ensure the safety of the public and U.S. Embassy employees, the Federal Benefits Unit is limiting face-to-face service to emergency appointments only until further notice. For urgent concerns and inquiries, please write to  and indicate the nature of your emergency.

Once we approve your request for in-person service, we will schedule you an appointment.  Please avoid sending multiple emails, as this will cause further delays.
