General Information

The U.S. Citizen Services (also called “American Citizen Services” or ACS) units of the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi and U.S. Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City provide a variety of services, including but not limited to passport assistance, Consular Reports of Births and Deaths Abroad, and notarial services. If this is an emergency — such as a death, arrest or crisis involving an American citizen, please contact us.

If you can’t travel to one of our ACS sections, we may come to you in the form of our Consular Outreach Visits (please visit the section below).
