The mission of the Bureau of Consular Affairs (CA) is to protect the lives and interests of American citizens overseas and to strengthen U.S. border security. Consular work is about touching people’s lives in a thousand different ways every day. We deal with events and issues that have a personal impact: birth, death, marriage, adoption, child custody, citizenship, and relocation to another country. CA provides the passports that enable Americans to travel internationally and stands ready to lend a helping hand when citizens fall victim to crime, accident or illness in other countries. Consular Affairs at the U.S. Embassy in Monrovia consists of American Citizen Services and Visa Services.
American Citizen Services (ACS) provides information and assistance to U.S. citizens residing in or visiting Liberia. Please review the U.S. Citizen Services section to learn more about how we assist with emergencies, travel registration and alerts, passports, reporting births abroad, adoptions, federal benefits, public services, and professional services. American Citizen Services are provided on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and as needed in the case of emergencies.
