U.S. Citizen Services

The American Citizen Services (ACS) Unit of the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Abidjan provides services to U.S. citizens living in Côte d’Ivoire, as well as to many tourist and business visitors each year. Among other things, the unit provides passport services, registers the birth of U.S. citizen children born abroad, offers notarial services, gives information on voting, and provides information to U.S. citizens visiting and residing in Côte d’Ivoire.

All these services are available at the Consular Section by appointment. Please click here to make an appointment and see available times for passport and citizenship services. Appointments are mandatory and required for all public services except emergencies and limited renewals of passports. Please see our passport page here for additional information.

Please schedule your appointment only after you have completely read the information on our website related to the service you need. To reduce your wait time, please fill out all required application forms and paperwork online in advance and bring them with you to your appointment.

There is no visa information available in the American Citizen Services Section, and consular staff cannot give visa advice, including for immigrant or nonimmigrant visas.
