Beginning October 7, visitors to the Consular Section of the United States Embassy will be permitted to drive to the Consular entrance to drop off customers requiring visa, federal benefits or U.S. citizen services. Following the drop off, drivers may park their vehicles in the parking area outside the U.S. Embassy's main gate. A limited number of parking places will be available in the lot across the street from the Consular entrance. Please follow traffic signs and instructions from local guards.

All vehicles and persons entering US Government property are subject to search.

Renew My Business/Tourism Visa

The Business/Tourism Renewal category reduces the time spent at the Consulate by approximately 30 minutes. Should you find that a Business/Tourism Renewal appointment is not available at your desired date and time, you may alternatively make a Business/Tourism Regular category appointment. You cannot, however, have an appointment in both categories.
