Access to the Consular Section
The U.S. Embassy handles several hundreds of applicants per day. As our space is limited, we must restrict access to our building to scheduled applicants (whose names appear on our daily visa appointment list), those who possess a written pass issued by the embassy or U.S. citizens who need American Citizen Services (ACS).
IMPORTANT: ACCESS WILL NOT BE GRANTED FOR PERSONAL INQUIRIES REGARDING VISA/PAROLE CASES NOR FOR ACCOMPANYING APPLICANTS. PLEASE LEARN ABOUT OUR BUILDING ACCESS POLICIES BEFORE VISITING US.
American Citizen Services is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00am-4:30pm and Friday from 8:00am-3:30pm. If you are an American citizen and have an emergency, please call the main switchboard at (+53)(7) 839-4100 and dial 1 to speak with the emergency operator. For detailed information regarding what services we provide to U.S. citizens, please visit our ACS page.
We recommend that applicants for visas and parole arrive at least one hour prior to their appointment time.
