Travel Advisory

The Consular Section of the Embassy provides such services as travel warnings, medical alerts, passport issuance for and registration of American citizens, and nonimmigrant visa issuance for travel to the United States.

In the event of an emergency involving a U.S. citizen during non-working hours, an Embassy duty officer is available. To contact the duty officer, the U.S. citizen should telephone the Embassy at (+224) 657-104-040 and describe the problem to the Marine Security Guard, who will then notify the duty officer.

For non-emergency services, American citizens are welcome anytime in the Consular Section.  However, due to workload, the best time to visit is from 8:30 a.m. to 15:00 pm on Thursday.
