New Policy for Personal Electronic Device Access to Embassy
Starting on January 2, 2018, consular section visitors will no longer be permitted to bring personal electronic devices (PEDs) or liquids onto the Embassy compound. This policy will apply to both visa applicants and U.S. citizen visitors. PED storage will no longer be available at the Embassy.
PEDs include computers, laptops, radios, cell phones, smart phones, MP3 players, iPads and other tablet devices, handheld gaming devices, smart watches, and wearable electronic fitness devices.
Water fountains are available in the consular section waiting room.
