U.S. Visa Interview Week – Public notice no consular services

The United States Embassy in Apia would like to inform the public that due to public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, effective immediately, regular consular services including but not limited to passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, notarial, and visa services are closed until further notice.

In an emergency, we can assist with an emergency passport for an adult or a minor. If you have previously applied for a passport or citizenship service, you should expect significant delays receiving your passport and your citizenship evidence documents.

We encourage you to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) program so you can receive important messages from the Embassy especially during times of crisis. Please do NOT send us your passport information as consular staff are not able to register you in the STEP program listed above.

For further information please visit our website or email our consular section at ApiaConsular@state.gov.
