Cancellation of Routine American Citizen Services (22 March, 2020)

As of 19 March, the United States Embassy and Consulates in Pakistan are cancelling routine American Citizens Services and all currently scheduled routine appointments.  We will resume routine services as soon as possible, but are unable to provide a specific date at this time.  The Embassy and Consulates will continue to provide emergency consular services to U.S. citizens on a case-by-case basis.  To schedule an emergency appointment, applicants must first contact the preferred consular section by email to discuss the nature of their emergency.  If the emergency appointment is approved, applicants will receive an email confirmation with further instructions.
