For security reasons only a limited number of people are allowed in the Consular lobby at a time. This can result in having to wait outside even in inclement weather.
To facilitate and speed up your entry into the Embassy/Consulate we recommend you bring no baggage. Once you enter the screening area, you should be prepared to remove from your person all metallic items and put them in a box for screening, together with your handbag /rucksack/briefcase, etc.
The following items are PROHIBITED and cannot be brought on to the premises. Persons carrying any of the items mentioned below will be denied entry to Embassy/Consulate facilities as long as the items are in their possession and will be asked to dispose of them. We suggest therefore that all such items be left either at home, in a locked car, or with a friend or relative who remains outside the premises.
While the majority of these articles are obvious security risks, they also include some commonplace items. |

NEW IRS FORM FOR OVERSEAS TAXPAYERS
The Form 8938 (Statement of Specified Foreign Financial Assets) should be filed by taxpayers with specific types and amounts of foreign financial assets or foreign accounts. It is important for taxpayers to determine whether they are subject to this new requirement because the law imposes significant penalties for failing to comply.
Form 8938, the instructions, regulations implementing this new foreign asset report, and other information to help taxpayers determine if they are required to file Form 8938 is available on the web by clicking Here.
