The U.S. Consular Agency in Barranquilla
If you are a U.S. citizen located on Colombia’s north coast, we encourage you to visit the U.S. Consular Agency in Barranquilla for many routine citizen services. The Consular Agency is located at Calle 77B No. 57-141, suite 511. Public visitation hours are 8:00 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday except holidays. No appointment is necessary.
However, since some services require the presence of the consular agent (as opposed to other consular agency staff) who also assists with emergencies outside of the office we recommend that you call the day before to confirm whether your service can be accommodated at your prospective visit time.
The Consular Agency accepts passport applications, provides notary services, documents children born to U.S. citizens in Colombia, and answers general inquiries. In conjunction with the American Citizen Services Unit in Bogota, the Consular Agency can also provide emergency assistance to U.S. citizens on the north coast. Please see the links to the left for information about specific services, including forms and fees.
To contact the Consular Agency, we encourage you to send an email through the U.S. Embassy’s American Citizen Services office, at ACSBogota@state.gov. Email messages are answered no later than the next business day.
The Consular Agency can also be reached by phone at (5) 353-2001 or (5) 353-2182. From the United States the number is 011-57-5-353-2001 or 011-57-5-353-2182.
