United States Consulate General
The Consulate is open weekdays from 9:00AM to 4:30PM, except American and Canadian holidays. American citizens are welcome to enter the Consulate during all business hours, but workload and staffing levels limit the time and personnel we can spontaneously allocate to non-emergency matters. Non-emergency services, including passports, reports of birth, notarials, Social Security, ITIN, etc., are handled by appointment only.
Please use our online booking form to schedule your appointment (Before printing or closing the appointment page, please make a note of the password provided (it is case sensitive) in your confirmation letter. The password is required if you wish to cancel or make changes to your appointment).
All appointment services for non-immigrant visas -- tourist, student, work, temporary workers, exchange, etc. -- are provided at no additional charge. Please click here for information on fees. To schedule a visa appointment, please click here. Visa applications are accepted by appointment only.
Please click here to read a general list of security procedures for U.S. Consulate Quebec. Any visitor who declines to be screened by U.S. Consulate security personnel will be prohibited from entering the Consulate.
Access to the Consulate is limited and generally only applicants are permitted to enter and be present during visa interviews. On a case-by-case basis, applicants may be accompanied by ONE non-applicant assist the applicant during the visa application process.
Please note: The Consulate has the right to refuse entry to any persons.
- Special Needs Visitors: Applicants may bring one person to assist them if they are over 80 years of age, are a minor child, or are disabled and require assistance to complete the application process.
- Interpreter: Applicants may bring one interpreter if they do not speak English well enough to participate in an interview, and consulate staff cannot interview them in their native language. A final decision as to whether or not an interpreter is needed will be made by consular staff on the day of the interview.
Due to waiting room size, the large volume of applicants and the time required to screen consular clients, persons not meeting the criteria above will not be permitted to accompany an applicant. Drivers, friends, and extra relatives, including the relatives of interpreters, must wait outside or return to meet the applicant after the interview has been completed.
