The online appointment system is easy to use, and appointments for all services are readily available.

We also have limited availability for walk-in appointments Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:00am to 11:00am.  Please note walk-in appointments may experience long wait times, as those with confirmed appointments will be accommodated first.  Depending on workload, we cannot guarantee walk-in appointments for non-emergency services will be accommodated.  Those seeking non-emergency services outside these hours will be asked to schedule an appointment. No walk-in ACS appointments for non-emergencies will be seen on Fridays.

American citizens in need of emergency assistance can contact us by phone at 01-773-166, ext. 3443. Emergencies will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
