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. (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 here to help you with emergency services for U.S. citizens, U.S. passports, notarials, Federal benefits, and a few other specialized consular services. We are located in the Wildey Business Park in Wildey, St. Michael. Please note: laptop computers, cameras, cell phones and other electronic devices are not allowed in the consular waiting room. Parking at the Embassy is very limited, and one may not park in adjacent lots. Please either come to the Embassy by taxi or ask someone to bring you and pick you up.
If questions arise while browsing through this web page, do not hesitate to contact us. We can be reached by telephone (246-227-4399), fax (246-431-0179), or e-mail Bridgetown ACS.
