U.S. Citizen Services - Appointments

NOTICE - Disruption to ACS Appointments

  • In November 2014, Australia will host the Group of Twenty (G20) Leader’s Summit in Brisbane. The G20 is the principal official forum for international economic cooperation.

    In the lead up to and during the Summit, U.S. Consulates in Australia will be forced to limit appointments for Consular Services. We will prioritize U.S. citizen services during this time period.  In light of these circumstances, we strongly encourage U.S. citizens to apply for services in advance.

 

To schedule an appointment with American Citizen Services (ACS), please refer to the below links. Please print your appointment confirmation and bring it with you to the Consulate.

NOTE: Appointment confirmations are not emailed once the appointment has been scheduled.

Access to the Consulates General

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