Due to the worsening COVID-19 situation in Jordan, the U.S. Embassy’s Consular Section is suspending routine American Citizen Services (ACS) as of November 20.  For those with immediate, emergency travel needs, the Consular Section will provide a one-year emergency passport that is printed on-site and delivered at the end of the appointment.
