Update for U.S. Citizens: Suspension of routine Consular Services at Embassy starting June 22
June 20, 2020

Message for U.S. CitizensLocation: Guatemala 

Event:  As a COVID-19-related health and safety measure, the U.S. Embassy in Guatemala City will suspend all routine consular services for U.S. citizens, beginning on Monday, June 22, and continuing until further notice.

While this suspension is in effect, the Embassy will provide passport services on an emergency basis only. U.S. citizens with expired or soon-to-expire passports who have imminent travel plans to the United States may request an emergency appointment at the Embassy through the e-mail address listed below.

Due to reduced operations at U.S. domestic facilities, U.S. citizens who have previously applied for routine passport or Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) services may expect delays in receiving their documents.  Applicants with documents in transit who have imminent travel plans to the United States may apply for emergency passports by scheduling an emergency appointment through the e-mail address listed below.  As a reminder, U.S. citizen children do not require a CRBA to qualify for an emergency passport.

To schedule an emergency appointment you can call 2326 4329 or email amcitsguatemala@state.gov.
