The Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our overseas passport and visa systems.  This issue is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working urgently to correct the problem and restore full operability.

 Passport applications accepted overseas or after May 26, 2015 are affected by this delay.  If you applied for a U.S. passport overseas during this time frame and have travel plans within the next 10 business days, please consider requesting an emergency passport at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate at which you originally applied.  Information about how to apply for an emergency passport is available at the following

The Consular Section is open from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday, except on U.S and Barbados holidays.  The Consular Section is 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.

Visa applicants paying their fees in cash are asked to bring exact change.
