  • You should be prepared to leave with little advance notice
  • Pack a “go” bag now with essential documents and other items
  • Keep in mind that you may be limited in how much luggage you can bring
  • There is no guarantee that pets will be accommodated.  Please make alternate arrangements for the care of your pet.
  • Updates will be provided as they become available.  Individual emails may experience a delay in responses due to high volume and decreased staffing at the Embassy.
