Important Notice
March 15, 2022

Due to the country-wide truck transportation strike that began on March 14, 2022, we anticipate significant delays in returning both passports with visas and issued U.S. passports.  We regret this delay which is out of our control.  Please plan appropriately as it may take additional time to receive your passport until the strike ends.

NOTE:  If you have urgent life or death travel before March 31, contact us using our contact form for visas or askacs@state.gov for U.S. passports.  Please note that options may be severely limited.  For all routine travel, the courier company will deliver your passport as soon as possible.
