U.S. Citizen Services
Welcome to the American Citizens Services (ACS) Unit!
This unit provides a wide range of Emergency and Non-emergency services for American Citizens in the Eastern Caribbean.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Effective September 1, 2013, the U.S. Embassy in Barbados and its Consular agents in Antigua and Barbuda and Martinique will no longer accept handwritten passport applications. You may now fill out your passport application form using the convenient online Passport Application Wizard. Once printed, this copy will contain a barcode that holds all of your information and will facilitate speedy, accurate, and efficient processing of your application. The same Wizard can also be used to apply for the new wallet-sized passport card (for use in crossing land borders only).
Walk-in ACS services are not available for Citizenship and Passport Services or Notarials and Authentications. Appointments for these services must be scheduled online. Once scheduled, please print out your confirmation sheet and bring it with you to the Embassy.
American Citizens may walk-in to pick up Federal Benefits Checks.
The American Citizens Services (ACS) office of U.S. Embassy Bridgetown serves U.S. citizens living in and visiting Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, the British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Montserrat, St. Barthélemy, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, French St. Martin, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Most of the services we provide are also available at our Embassy in Grenada and our Consular Agencies in Antigua and Martinique.
U.S. citizens in Dutch St. Maarten, Saba and St. Eustatius are served by the U.S. Consulate General in Curaçao.
The ACS unit is unable to respond to visa inquiries. You may visit our Visa Section for visa related information.
