U.S. Citizen Services

Welcome to the Consular Section of the American Embassy in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. The American Citizen Services Unit offers a broad range of services to American Citizens in Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. These duties include: passport services, notarials, registration, Consular Reports of Birth Abroad, voting in U.S. elections, various federal benefits and more. In addition, ACS assists U.S. citizens in emergency situations including arrests, deaths, and crisis.

Americans living or traveling abroad to these countries should register with the Embassy. Through registration, the Embassy can more accurately gauge the number and location of American citizens in the event that an emergency situation necessitates the rapid dissemination of vital information.

If an American citizen is involved in a serious accident, in distress, or dies, please call our 24-hour number (675) 7200-9439 and ask for the Duty Officer. The ACS unit is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.

For more information about American Citizen Services, please go to the International Travel website of the US Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs.
