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. U.S. citizens, who have not already done so, are encouraged to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive Mission Pakistan updates.
Welcome to the American Citizens Services (ACS) Pakistan. ACS provides services to thousands of United States citizens living and working in Pakistan.
In addition to routine passport and notary services, the ACS unit visits Americans in jail, assists families and friends following the death of a U.S. citizen loved one, offers help to U.S. children and families involved in abductions, checks on the welfare and whereabouts of U.S. citizens, and assists in repatriating Americans in need. Additionally, we can help you register to vote in U.S. elections, and can provide you with information on safety and security in Pakistan.
