Here is the latest message from the ACS.
The Consular Section at the U.S. Embassy in Panama City would like to inform U.S. Citizens living in Panama that the Consular Section will be closed to the public every second Wendesday of the month, starting November 9, for professional development and training. We will not schedule any appointments, accept routine calls, or return passports on these training days. Of course, consular staff will be available to provide assistance to U.S. Citizens in emergency situations.
