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.

Due to the current situation related to COVID-19, American Citizen Services is providing emergency services only. All American Citizen Services visitors should schedule your appointment on-line. Please note that due to COVID-19, some appointment procedures have changed. In accordance with the Government of Armenia’s requirement that individuals wear face masks in public places to combat 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.

Additionally, applicants must arrive ON TIME to their appointments. This ensures we maintain appropriate social distancing protocols per Department of State policies. Applicants who arrive to the Embassy more than fifteen minutes after their scheduled appointment time will have their appointments cancelled, and will have to reschedule their appointment for a different day. We encourage individuals to arrive at the Embassy ten minutes prior to their allotted appointment time in order to allow time to pass through security. We also strongly encourage U.S. citizens to make an appointment only for the type of service you are actually seeking.

New for Social Security: All Social Security issues must now go directly though the Federal Benefit Unit in Athens. Our Social Security page gives the details.

Do not make an appointment at the Embassy for Social Security issues.

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.
