The following is the holiday closing schedule of the United States Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia as quoted directly from the Post’s official website:

Each year, many American Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents seek services from a US Mission abroad. In many cases such services can only be provided by an American Citizen Services Section of a US Embassy or US Consulate abroad. Such services include, but are not limited to: issuance of Consular Reports of Birth Abroad, issuance of US Passports, or additional visa pages for a previously issued American Passport.

Those seeking temporary US visas such as the B-2 visa for tourists, the F-1 visa for foreign students, the B-1 visa for temporary business purposes, or the J-1 visa for cultural exchange visitors are often required to process their application through a Non-Immigrant Visa Unit of a US Mission abroad. Meanwhile, those seeking US family visa benefits for travel documents such as the CR-1 visa or the IR-1 visa generally process such requests through an Immigrant Visa (IV) Unit of a US Mission abroad. Even though the K-1 visa is a non-immigrant US fiance visa it is often treated in much the same way as an immigrant visa for processing purposes.

Those seeking an EB-5 visa or an L-1 visa are often required to process an immigration petition and receive approval of such a petition from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).
