For emergency passport services, or for other issues not listed in the appointment system, please refer to our contact information listed below.

Routine services are available by appointment only from Sunday to Thursday between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.  Please note that the consular section is closed on all U.S. and Jordanian public holidays and the last Thursday of each month.

Important Notice

Remember that your appointment signifies the time when you should appear at the Embassy’s public entrance for security screening.  You should expect to be at the Embassy for at least one hour.  Applicants who do not appear at the appointed time will experience considerable delays and/or the possibility of the appointment not being honored.

Security Notice

Visitors to the U.S. Embassy must pass through security checkpoints, including walk-through-metal-detectors (WTMD) similar to visiting an airport.  It may also be necessary to undergo additional screening, to include hand-held metal detectors and pat-down inspections.  Both male and female guards are present.  Prior to passing through the WTMD you must remove all metal items, including jewelry, coins, watches and belt buckles.  Electronic devices such as mobile phones will not be permitted into the Embassy.  Your visit to the Consular Section will be much easier and faster if you leave these items at home or in the car, so that you can proceed through security with the minimum disturbance.
