U.S. Citizen Services

The Consular Section of the U. S. Embassy in Yerevan provides a variety of services for U.S. citizens. There are two units in the Consular Section: the U.S. Citizen Services Section and the Visa Section. Please note that American Citizen Services appointments are NOT for visa-related questions or issues. Additionally, do not make an appointment at the Embassy for Social Security issues.

Due to the current situation related to COVID-19, American Citizen Services is providing services by appointment on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. All American Citizen Services visitors should schedule your appointment on-line. Please note that due to COVID-19, you must wear a face mask to enter the U.S. Embassy for any consular services. Individuals without a face mask will not be permitted to enter the U.S. Embassy, and will have to reschedule their appointment.
