U.S. Citizen Services
The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our passport/visa system. This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or visa at this time. We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.
The Consular Section of the United States Embassy in Gaborone provides routine services and emergency assistance to U.S. Citizens visiting or residing in Botswana.
