U.S. Citizen Services


The consular section of the U.S. Embassy in Ouagadougou is reducing non-emergency services until further notice due to staffing shortages.

We have suspended non-emergency services effective July 24, 2023.  Until further notice, only cases meeting emergency appointment criteria continue. 

If you have an emergency and need to obtain an emergency passport or Consular Report of Birth Abroad, please send an email to OuagaACS@state.gov to request an emergency appointment.  Please be aware that emergency appointment availability is extremely limited.


Services for U.S. Citizens are available in the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Ouagadougou by appointment only.
