U.S. Citizen Services

Welcome to the Consular Section of the American Embassy in Suva, Fiji. We are geographically the largest consular section in the world serving Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Tonga, Tuvalu, and the French territories of French Polynesia, New Caledonia and Wallis & Futuna. The American Citizen Services Unit offers a broad range of services to American Citizens in Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Tonga, Tuvalu, and French Polynesia. These duties include: passport services, notarials, registration, Consular Reports of Birth Abroad, documentation for marriage, voting in U.S. elections, various federal benefits and more. In addition, ACS assists U.S. citizens in emergency situations including arrests, deaths, and crisis.

Americans living or traveling abroad to these countries should register with the Embassy. Through registration, the Embassy can more accurately gauge the number and location of American citizens in the event that an emergency situation necessitates the rapid dissemination of vital information. This service is now available online. Information on how to register.

In an emergency involving a U.S. citizen, such as a death, arrest, or serious injury, please call the American Citizen Services Unit at +679-331-4466 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fiji time, Monday through Friday.  Please note that the after-hours phone number is for emergencies only and is unable to assist with questions about U.S. visas.

As of June 30, American citizens are no longer able to use expired passport to return to the United States. To renew your passport, schedule an appointment with us. https://fj.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/
