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.

From August 13, 2018 American Citizen Services hours are provided by appointment on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons from 1:30pm to 3:00pm, except for holidays.

We welcome applications for U.S. passports, reports of birth, notarials and affidavits, and other services during that time.  All visitors for routine consular services and inquiries 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.
