Many Americans and foreign nationals seek services from American Diplomatic and Consular Posts located throughout the world. Many seek services which can only be obtained from an American official. These services include, but are not limited to: issuance of Consular Reports of Birth Abroad, addition of visa pages, renewal of a US passport, and /or notarial services. Those seeking such services are well advised to check the official website of the post in order to ascertain if an appointment can be made online to visit the US Embassy. Setting an appointment in advance can greatly streamline the processing of requests at an American Citizen Services Section of an American Consulate abroad.

Those seeking a US visa are well advised to check with the appropriate US Consulate in order to obtain information about the procedures for setting a visa interview appointment. Generally, the protocols for setting a non-immigrant visa interview appointment are different from the procedures for setting an immigrant visa interview appointment (generally, for purposes of Consular Processing the K1 visa is treated as an immigrant visa).
