American Citizen Services (ACS)

ATTENTION:  U.S. embassies and consulates are currently experiencing technical difficulties that may result in delays in visa processing and receiving and sending communications.  Additionally, applicants who have interviews for student and exchange visitor (F/M/J) visas scheduled for this week should bring proof of payment of the SEVIS fee.  All American citizens requesting fee services should be prepared to pay in cash, in either local or U.S. currency. 

The Consular Section’s American Citizen Services Unit (ACS) welcomes you to Chile and reminds you that serving the interests of U.S. citizens is our top priority.  We urge you to sign up with the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).   Please see the left sidebar for information and to learn more about our services.

The American Citizen Services Section does not handle visa inquires that U.S. citizens may have regarding non-U.S. citzen relatives or friends.
