Pop-up U.S. Consulate Headed to PG
Prince George, B.C. – American expats living in Prince George and surrounding communities and needing U.S. consular services are in luck.
Tomorrow the U.S. Consulate General in Vancouver will be hosting a traveling “Pop-Up Consulate” at the Prince George Public Library.
Consulate staff will be in the second-floor study room accepting passport and Consular Report of Birth Abroad applications and providing notarial services.
(They will not be offering Nexus interviews or offering loss of U.S. nationality services).
Ingrid Specht, vice consul with the American Citizen Services unit at the U.S. Consulate in Vancouver, says its their first visit to Prince George.
“We’ve been thinking a lot this year about what we can do to reach out to our American citizens that are living in communities that are kind of dispersed around B.C.,” she says. “So, Prince George is one area we haven’t been to and we just wanted to see what the interest level was and it looks like it’s pretty good.”
Specht recommends people email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment and to find out what the fees are for their services.
She says they will be at the library from 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. and hints it likely won’t be their last trip to B.C.’s northern capital.
“If people are interested in this kind of outreach but unable to come on Thursday please send us an email and we’ll let them know the next time we’re up in Prince George.”
