Security Information

For the safety of all of our customers and staff, all visitors to the Embassy must pass through security screening at our reception area before entering the Consular Section. Please allow time for screening before your appointment. We appreciate your patience and cooperation.

Please be advised that the appointment time is a guide as to when you should plan to be at the Embassy. It is not necessarily the time you will be seen by the Consular Officer. Applicants should plan to spend at least an hour in the Consular Section.

Please do not bring luggage, including backpacks, to your appointment. You will not be able to bring these items into the Embassy, and there is no storage available at our offices.

Mobile telephones and other telecommunication devices, electronic recording devices, and cameras may not be taken into the Embassy. Please turn them off, and leave them with the guards at the reception area. They can be collected after your appointment.

Any type of head wear, including baseball caps, must be removed while in the Embassy.
