Security Information

When you schedule your appointment, you are placed on an access list to be allowed entry into the consular section at the time of your appointment.

Applicants should not bring any large objects, such as bags, backpacks, suitcases, or baby carriages. These items will not be allowed into the Consular Section, and there is no storage space at the security entrance. Animals are not permitted. We strongly discourage bringing any other electronic devices, including laptops, tablets/iPads, MP3 players, mobile phones, smart watches, etc., as these, along with electronic keys, will have to be left with security and retrieved upon exit. This can create a delay for you, and the U.S. Embassy is not responsible for any article you leave at the security checkpoint.

All persons seeking access the U.S. Embassy will need to present government-issued photo identification, such as a passport or national ID.

Reasonable Accommodation

If you need reasonable accommodation for your appointment, we encourage you to request your accommodation immediately once you schedule your appointment. We make every effort to provide accommodations to persons with disabilities and medical conditions. Reasonable accommodations vary, depending on the situation and the person’s needs.

Examples of accommodations include, but are not limited to:

    • If you require a private appointment due to a medical condition or disability, we may schedule an alternative time for you to come in for your interview.
    • If you or your child has special needs that requires a private appointment in a quiet space without distractions, we may schedule an alternative time for you or your family to come in for your interview.
    • If you are unable to speak, you may be allowed to respond to questions in an agreed-upon nonverbal manner such as using pen and paper.
    • If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you may bring a sign language interpreter to translate during the interview if needed.
    • If you have low vision, we may provide you with communications in large print.

If you are unable to provide fingerprints because of a medical condition, including birth defects, physical deformities, skin conditions, you may qualify for a fingerprint waiver for certain fingers.

Interview waivers are only granted in extreme situations, such as having a medical condition that requires flying in an air ambulance.

The waiting room of the Consular Section and its restroom is wheelchair-accessible.
