Milan Consular Section Construction Project Impact, July 22, 2019

The Consular Section at the U.S. Consulate General in Milan, Italy, will be undergoing a construction project from August 5-23, 2019, to renovate and upgrade its facilities. Consequently, appointments for all Non-Immigrant Visa services and some American Citizen services will be affected. Applicants may experience increased wait times for an appointment during this period.

Visa Applicants: The U.S. Consulate General will offer reduced appointment capacity during the dates of the construction project. The Consular Section recommends visa applicants schedule their visa appointments well in advance of travel dates to avoid delayed processing. While it is possible to request an expedited visa appointment through the online appointment system, please note that expedite requests will be approved in emergency cases only (a list of acceptable criteria is available on the online appointment system).

The U.S. Embassy in Rome and the U.S. Consulates General in Florence and Naples stand ready to support visa applicants who may be impacted by the reduced visa services at the U.S. Consulate General in Milan. For information on scheduling your visa appointment, please visit: www.it.usembassy.gov/visas/

American Citizen Services: Limited American passport renewal and notarial services will be offered during the renovation project. American citizens needing to renew their full-validity passports are encouraged to book appointments well in advance of travel dates to avoid delays in processing their passport applications. The U.S. Consulate General in Milan will continue to accept all emergency passport requests throughout the construction period and our emergency line will continue to be available. American citizens who have an emergency during business hours (8:00am to 5:00pm) may call 02-2903-5332; outside business hours, they may call the Consulate switchboard at 02-290-351 for assistance. Please note that during the construction project, no Consular Reports of Birth Abroad (CRBAs) will be processed at the U.S. Consulate General in Milan.
