Location:  U.S. Embassy Beirut Lebanon

The U.S. Embassy will resume limited online scheduling of American Citizen Services (ACS) appointments on Thursday, October 22. Schedule appointments using the U.S. Citizen Services page.

Due to COVID-19 mitigation efforts, including reduced staffing and limited space, ACS Beirut has not yet resumed normal operations and remains committed to social distancing by reducing the number of daily appointments. All visitors to the U.S. Embassy are required to wear masks. Any individual seeking consular services will not be allowed entry without one.

In case of an emergency situation requiring immediate ACS attention, please contact BeirutACS@state.gov to request an appointment.
