  • U.S. Consulates Closed Due to Security Concerns

    Due to the outbreak of hostilities in Iraq on March 19, 2003 evening (March 20, 2003 local Iraq time), several consulates / embassies have been closed to the public.

    At a press briefing on March 20, 2003, Mr. Richard Boucher, spokesman for the U.S. Department of State, confirmed the closures of at least 15 consulates / embassies, though the list below from other sources is more extensive. Most of the consulates or embassies listed below expect to continue to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens. Chiefs of mission and ambassadors overseas would make the determination based on local security conditions. Depending on the local conditions and threat levels, the list of consular posts may change. It is best to check the respective consulate's website or call the consulate to find what services, if any, are available.

    The posts that have either been fully closed or offer reduced and emergency services only are:

    Almaty, Khazakstan
    Amman, Jordan
    All posts in Australia
    Bucharest, Romania
    Buenos Aires, Argentina
    Cairo, Egypt
    Caracas, Venezuela,
    Damascus, Syria
    Istanbul, Turkey
    Kabul, Afghanistan
    Lagos, Nigeria
    Paris, France
    Nairobi, Kenya
    Oslo, Norway
    All posts in Pakistan
    Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
    Savanna, Yemen
    Skopje, Macedonia
    All posts in South Africa
