Note: In accordance with U.S. Department of State worldwide regulations in place due to COVID-19 to prevent the spread of the pandemic, the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Bujumbura has temporarily restricted some routine consular processing. Because of a staff shortage and COVID-19 restrictions, the U.S. Embassy cannot at this time provide a regular schedule of services for visas and will continue to handle all emergency services for U.S. citizens on a case-by-case basis. For urgent requests, please email BujumburaC@state.gov. Until we are fully operational, please also continue to check https://evisaforms.state.gov/acs/default.asp?postcode=BUJ&appcode=1 for the availability of regular visa appointments, which will be added on a limited basis, as available.
The Consular Section offers routine U.S. Citizen Services on Thursdays, including new passport issuance, notary services, and consular reports of birth abroad. Always bring your U.S. passport when visiting the Embassy. Appointments can only be booked online. Click here to book an appointment.
