U.S. Citizen Services

Welcome to U.S. Citizens Services at the United States Embassy in Haiti. This section provides information on specific consular services available to U.S. citizens in Haiti.

We understand the challenges that the rapidly evolving international response to the COVID-19 pandemic is causing U.S. citizens who are seeking to return to the United States.

The U.S. Embassy in Haiti continues to work closely with the State Department Repatriation Task Force to assist U.S. citizens who wish to depart Haiti, while observing the Haitian Government’s measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

The U.S. Embassy urges U.S. citizens to enroll at STEP.state.gov to receive emergency updates from the Embassy and should monitor the Embassy website and Twitter feed for up-to-date information.

Effective May 11, the government of Haiti has directed everyone to wear face masks when in public.   Masks must also be worn during appointments at the U.S. Embassy.

American citizens who wish to return to the United States should plan to do so immediately.  U.S. citizens who do not return to the United States while commercial or commercially available charter flights are available may be forced to remain outside of the United States for an indefinite period.

For all queries related to returning to the United States, please email PortauPrinceUSCitizen@state.gov.  Your email message should include the following information:

    • Your full name as spelled in your passport
    • Information we can use to contact you now – a current phone number and email address.
    • Your date of birth (MM/DD/YYYY)
    • Your passport number, and its date of issuance and expiration.  If it is not a U.S. passport, please note the country that issued it.  Please also note any non-U.S. citizen immediate family members traveling with you.
    • Please note your current location (city and country) and any special needs you may have, such as medical issues.

Effective March 19, U.S. Embassy Port-au-Prince has suspended all non-emergency consular services. Out of an abundance of caution and as a measure to protect the health of our applicants and our staff, the Embassy is limiting services to those related to urgent travel. If you have urgent travel requirements, please contact American Citizen Services at 509-2229-8000 or by email at acspap@state.gov to request an emergency appointment.  Appointments for Consular Reports of Birth Abroad, routine passport renewal and associated DNA appointments as well as all non-emergency notarial appointments have been suspended until further notice.
