Ask the Consul – When will the Embassy open?

The Embassy remains closed for all routine services. In order to open, we consider not only local regulations, but also recommendations from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and directly from the State Department. We do not have a specific date to open, but please continue to check our website and social media accounts for more information or any changes. For emergencies or specific questions regarding your visa, please send an email to or call 829-956-5144. US citizens who need assistance can contact the American Citizen Services unit here in Santo Domingo by email at or can visit our website  for more information on available services, including renewal of passports by mail.
