Office Hours - Legal and Consular Department

The Legal and Consular Department of the Embassy is open to the public Monday through Friday, except on selected German and American Holidays. 

The Embassy and its consular office follow the decision of the U.S. Federal Government in Washington, DC, on closing or delayed opening in extreme weather conditions. Passport and visa applicants who have an appointment scheduled in the consular office on a day when the Embassy is closed for this reason may call 202-298-4393 on the next day on which we are open in order to reschedule.
