U.S. Citizen Services

The U.S. Embassy in Chile continues to offer only emergency services for U.S. citizens in Chile. This includes regular passport renewals that can be submitted by mail. Routine services not related to safety (such as in-person passport renewals without imminent travel and notarial services) are not considered emergencies, and will not be scheduled at this time. We will resume routine operations as local conditions evolve. Monitor our social media and website for information.

The 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).

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

For nonimmigrant visa questions, please contact santiagovisa@state.gov.
