Consular Section

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok is made up of American Citizen Services and the Visa Section.

The American Citizen Services unit assists Americans living abroad by accepting passport applications, issuing emergency passports, reports of birth and death abroad and notarials, handling applications for federal benefits and providing emergency services for American citizens in distress.

The Visa Section provides services to those seeking to enter the United States for a temporary period and for those wishing to take up indefinite or permanent residence.

The U.S. Consulate General in Chiang Mai issues nonimmigrant visas in the north-western 16 provinces and assists Americans living and traveling in the district.
