The United States Embassy would like to inform all U.S. Citizens living in Malawi that the Consular Section continues to operate with severely reduced services.  The United States Embassy in Malawi remains unable to resume routine visa services (immigrant and non-immigrant) at this time.  We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date. During this time, services are limited to supporting U.S. citizens with consular emergencies.
