Dear American Citizens:

This email is to provide you with important information and alert you to changes occurring in the American Citizen Services Unit in February 2011.

Temporary Closure of the U.S. Embassy Tel Aviv American Citizens Services Unit
The American Citizen Services Unit (including the Federal Benefits Unit) will be closed for renovations from Friday, February 11 through Tuesday, February 22, 2011, and on Thursday, February 24, 2011. The American Citizens Services Unit will process a very limited number of emergency cases during its closure.  Pleasure travel and pre-purchased airline tickets do not qualify as emergencies.  To request an emergency appointment, email AMCTelAviv@state.gov.  Otherwise, schedule your appointment after our renovations at http://israel.usembassy.gov/consular/acs/appointments.html.  The U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem (https://evisaforms.state.gov/acs/default.asp?postcode=JRS&appcode=1) and the U.S. Consular Agency in Haifa (http://israel.usembassy.gov/haifa.html) will be open for business as usual.
