Security Information


We strongly advise visitors to arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment time.  In some cases we may not be able to accommodate visitors who arrive more than 15 minutes late.

Please allow for at least five minutes to complete the required security screening at the Consular entrance to the Embassy compound across from the Jovena gas station.


Due to security concerns and space limitations, the U.S. Embassy does not allow interested parties such as friends, relatives, attorneys, or business contacts to attend a visa interview with an applicant.  All U.S. Embassy visitors and their personal belongings must pass through a security screening before entering the Embassy compound.  For reasons of safety and security, visitors may not bring the following prohibited items onto the Embassy compound:

    • Cell phones, computers, and other electronic devices;
      Note: Cell phones may be stored securely at the Consular entrance for the duration of your visit but there is limited storage for other electronic items.
    • Media devices such as CDs, thumb drives, SD cards, headphones, speakers, etc.;
    • Cameras or video equipment, or other recording devices;
    • Flashlights;
    • Lighters and matches;
    • Knives and other sharp objects;
    • Other weapons or any item which can be used as a weapon;
    • Purses and bags larger than 18” x 18”; and
    • Liquids, gels, aerosols, oils, lotions, or powder (see exceptions below).

This list is not all-inclusive and security officials reserve the right to deny entry of items determined to be unsafe or a threat to security.

The following items are permitted:

    • Medical devices (please declare prior to screening);
    • Small quantities of make-up;
    • Small quantities of baby formula, baby food, and milk;
    • Small quantities of diapers;
    • Belts;
    • Watches;
    • Keys;
    • Non-liquid medications; and
    • Baby carriers or strollers that are small enough to pass through an x-ray machine.

Reasonable Accommodation

If you need reasonable accommodation for your appointment, we encourage you to request your accommodation immediately once you schedule your appointment. We make every effort to provide accommodations to persons with disabilities and medical conditions. Reasonable accommodations vary, depending on the situation and the person’s needs.
Examples of accommodations include, but are not limited to:

    • If you require a private appointment due to a medical condition or disability, we may schedule an alternative time for you to come in for your interview.
    • If you or your child has special needs that requires a private appointment in a quiet space without distractions, we may schedule an alternative time for you or your family to come in for your interview.
    • If you are unable to speak, you may be allowed to respond to questions in an agreed-upon nonverbal manner such as using pen and paper.
    • If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you may bring a sign language interpreter to translate during the interview if needed.
    • If you have low vision, we may provide you with communications in large print.

If you are unable to provide fingerprints because of a medical condition, including birth defects, physical deformities, skin conditions, you may qualify for a fingerprint waiver for certain fingers.

  • Interview waivers are only granted in extreme situations, such as having a medical condition that requires flying in an air ambulance.
