Greetings U.S. Citizens residing in Vanuatu,

We hope you have all weathered Cyclone Donna without injury or damage, and wish everyone a speedy recovery!

The U.S. Embassy in Port Moresby is pleased to announce our next visit to Vanuatu. A Consular Officer will be in Port Vila on Tuesday, May 23 at Jill’s Café (downtown Port Vila).

We will have two appointment times: from 10:00-12:00 am and from 2:00-4:00 pm. Please contact us to make a specific appointment time.

The consular officer will be available to provide basic consular services such as accepting Consular Reports of Birth Abroad applications, U.S. passport applications, and Social Security applications.

Please visit the US Department of State website to print out the appropriate passport application form for your required service. Please ensure the application forms are fully completed and bring them with you, along with any required supporting documents. Please be sure to bring original documents, and photocopies. After the original documents are seen by the Consular Officer, he will return the originals back to you and retain the copies.

Please ensure that passport photos are the correct size and meet the requirements. Make sure to include a self-paid courier (either from DHL/TNT) for the return of your passport(s) and Consular Report of Abroad Certificate(s) for your child(ren).

Please make sure you have ALL the required documents, as there will be no chance for a second meeting on this trip.
