Overview:

U.S. consulates are located across Canada, with the U.S. Embassy in the national capital of Ottawa. Before you visit the U.S. Embassy or any of the U.S. consulates in Canada, call ahead. Many services are by appointment only and are offered at irregular hours. Be prepared for your visit by having all the necessary items with you. Nothing is more frustrating than getting to a government office only to be turned away - even more frustrating than waiting on hold on the telephone, so call before you go.



Also, U.S. travellers to Canada are encouraged to register their trips abroad online.
