American Citizen Services

Welcome to the American Citizen Services (ACS) page of the U.S. Consulate in Shenyang. We consider the provision of services to American citizens in our district (Liaoning, Jilin and Heilongjiang Provinces) as one of our most important missions.

In addition to routine consular services (such as passport renewals and birth registrations), we also provide assistance to U.S. citizens in emergencies, including arrests, deaths and crisis situations.

Beginning the week of August 12, 2019 American Citizen Services hours will return to normal availability; Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm, except for holidays.

Until August 12, 2019, we are only able to offer appointments per our compressed summer schedule, with availability three days per week, on Monday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons, beginning at 2:00 pm, except for holidays. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility.

We welcome applications for U.S. passports and reports of birth, as well as notarials and affidavits, during these times.  All visitors for these routine consular services must make an appointment through our ACS online appointment system.

If you have an emergency such as a death, arrest or hospitalization to report, please contact ACS as soon as possible.

Please see our list of other services for our full range of services and information for Americans residing in the Shenyang consular district.
