U.S. EMBASSY SANA’A
REMAINS OPEN FOR VISA SERVICES
Updated November 12, 2014
U.S. Embassy Sana’a remains open for the full range of visa services. However, Embassy staffing reductions caused by the security situation in Yemen have severely reduced visa processing volumes.
If you are a tourist, business traveler, student, or temporary visitor, please consult the Non-Immigrant Visa webpage for more information.
If you are immigrating to the United States, please see the Immigrant Visa webpage for more information.
If you are a U.S. citizen requiring an urgent citizenship service, please email us at SanaaACS@state.gov.
IMPORTANT: We understand that the security situation in Yemen is causing frustrating delays for our visa applicants and their families. However, we ask that visa applicants not come to the Embassy without an appointment. The security situation in Sana’a precludes us from allowing anyone without a pre-scheduled appointment to enter the Embassy compound in order to apply for a visa or inquire about any visa related matter. If you come to the Embassy without an appointment, you will not be allowed through the gates, and you will not be allowed to speak with a Consular Officer. To contact us about a visa related matter, please see the webpages referenced above.
