United States Embassy in South Africa

With an ever-increasing number of American Tourists visiting South African shores – and with a large number of South African’s choosing to spend time in the United States, the US Embassy has a lot of work to do. The U.S. Embassy is housed in a large rectangular building covering an entire city block. While all those inside this massive construction work for the same purpose, you will find that a number of them are American, while others are South African. Thus you will always find someone that you feel you can talk to – someone who understands your individual needs.

The US Embassy in South Africa is located in 877 Pretorius Street, Arcadia in Pretoria. This stunning city is the setting for many different embassies and consulates and the United States is no exception. With one of the largest embassy buildings in the country, it is difficult to miss and tourists from out of the country need not feel too lost when searching for help to replace lost or stolen visas and other important documents. The US Embassy in South Africa provides a number of special services for citizens of the United States, including the provision of replacement passports, birth reports and notarials. They are also the best place to contact if you have an emergency whilst on holiday such as a death in the family or an arrest.

Of course, the US Embassy is no stranger to South African citizens either and hundreds visit the embassy to apply for American Visas each year. A number of work-and-tour programs are offered to students graduating from high school and this has lead to an increase of South African visitors on American soil. Whether you’re looking for a Non-immigrant Visa or an Immigrant Visa, you can be sure that the US Embassy in Pretoria is the place to contact. Alternatively, you can contact one of the US Consulates in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg. Whatever you choose, you can be sure that you will be provided with all the information necessary to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime trip so contact the US Embassy today.
