Tips for a smooth and comfortable embassy visit:

  • Dress for the weather, you may have to stand in line outside.
  • Please bring everything that you need to your appointment. Having all items that you need will eliminate the need to leave and re-enter the embassy, thus going through multiple airport-type security checks.
  • Please read the website for detailed information regarding required items for your appointment.
