People seeking consular services at the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the branch in Tel Aviv will be able to book appointments free of charge but in a limited capacity due to continued restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus, the embassy website announced this week.Services such as Passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) and Federal Benefits (Social Security) appointments are now available to be scheduled for in-person appointments."All Social Security, passport, CRBA, and visa forms and applications are FREE and publicly available," said the embassy. Scheduling is still limited, the embassy said, stressing that any services which can be done online or by mail should continue to be done in that manner."The health and safety of those who work at and visit our embassy facilities are our highest priority," said the embassy on its website. "In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in line with the US, Israel and Palestinian Authority governments’ public health guidance, the Consular Sections at the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the US Embassy Branch Office in Tel Aviv continue to provide limited in-person emergency services."The most requested service, passport renewals, will only have limited availability for in-person appointments, and can be done by mail.
