Temporary Suspension of Services at U.S. Consular Agency in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands

The following message is to notify U.S. citizens living in and travelling to the Turks & Caicos Islands that office hours and appointments for routine consular services at the U.S. Consular Agency in Providenciales have been temporarily suspended until further notice.  The Embassy hopes to resume services as soon as possible, and apologizes for any inconvenience the suspension of operations may cause.  In the interim, a U.S. consular officer from Nassau will offer certain consular services by appointment on a monthly basis in Providenciales until normal operations resume.  Please email ACSNassau@state.gov to schedule.

We also remind U.S. citizens residing in the Turks and Caicos Islands that they can utilize our mail-in program if they are renewing an adult passport.  Adult citizens renewing their passport can mail a passport application (DS-82) along with a 2-inch by 2-inch photo, and one money order or bank draft made out to U.S. Embassy for $110 and one money order to FedEx for $58.72.  We regret that we cannot accept applications for U.S. passports for minor citizens or first time adult passport applications by mail.  During the suspension of operations, those applicants must make an appointment and appear in person at the U.S. Embassy in Nassau, The Bahamas.

For U.S. citizens who are victims of crime or have urgent medical or welfare issues, please contact the U.S. Embassy’s Consular Section directly at 242-322-1181 and ACSNassau@state.gov.
