On the appointment day: For access to the Consular Section, U.S. Citizens should bring identification, preferably a U.S. passport. If you have been robbed of your identification, bring a photocopy if possible. If not, we can work to establish your identity at the gate before you enter.
If you have an appointment, please print and bring your appointment confirmation with you. It will also contain a checklist of all the documents you will need to bring. Use the checklist to avoid having to make repeat trips to the Embassy.
Parking: American Citizens Service (ACS) section has a limited number of first come first served parking spaces to offer to our ACS patrons who have booked an appointment. The security guards must check the appointment list before allowing an ACS patron to park.
The parking spaces are located on the road that runs along the side of the embassy from U.N. road and ends at Village Market.

There will be no admittance at the gate along the road where the ACS parking is located. Please be advised that the walk from the parking area to the consular entrance is about ten minutes.
