The deadline for voter registration for November election is getting close but it is still not too late to register. Don’t miss the opportunity to exercise one of your most important rights as an American citizen.

There are two ways to register to vote while you are abroad. For most states you can register online via the Federal Voting Assistance Program website at or you can register in person at the Embassy during American Citizen Services hours Sunday through Thursday 1-3 or Monday through Thursday 9-11.

The Embassy will also be open for extended hours, on Sunday, October 5th from 1500-1900 to allow Americans who are unable to come to the Embassy during regular hours to register to vote. These special hours are for voting assistance only; no other American Citizen Services will be performed.

All citizens should bring two forms of ID, including a U.S. issued ID such as a driver’s license or passport. Please ensure that you bring your U.S ID inside, as you will need information from it for your voter registration form.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the embassy at or
