The U.S. Embassy invites American citizens living in eastern Libya to Benghazi's Tibesti Hotel conference room on Friday, March 12 from 7-9pm for an open house.  During this period, limited consular services will be available to include Consular Reports of Birth Abroad and passport processing, and some notarial services.  No visa processing will be available at that time. We request that any interested visitors research the fees and necessary documents on our website and bring exact change (in dinars) and copies of all documents for processing. First come, first served!

Americans traveling abroad should regularly monitor the U.S. Embassy's website and the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs' website, where the current Worldwide Caution, Travel Warnings, and Travel Alerts can be found.  The U.S. Embassy also encourages U.S. citizens to review "A Safe Trip Abroad," which includes valuable security information for those both residing and traveling abroad.  U.S. citizens may also call the Office of Overseas Citizens Services in the United States for the latest travel information.  The Office of Overseas Citizens Services can be reached from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, Monday through Friday, by calling 1-888-407-4747 from within the United States and Canada, or by calling (202) 501-4444 from other countries.
