What Can I Bring ?

You can bring your mobile phone, e-reader, or tablet device.  Key fobs and cycle/motorcycle helmets are also permitted.

Large bags/suitcases (above cabin baggage size) and laptops cannot be admitted to the Embassy. Other items that cannot be brought into the building include perfume and cologne (above 30ml), weapons and glass bottles.

Prohibited items cannot be stored at the Embassy so leave them at home or store them securely before you arrive. Left luggage facilities are available for a fee at several airports, coach stations, and mainline train stations, including Waterloo and Victoria.

Please see our appointment guide (color PDF / 2 pages) to help you prepare for your interview and find your way to the U.S. Embassy in London. We suggest that you print the guide and bring it with you to your appointment so that you can check it on the day.

For security purposes, the U.S Embassy, London strictly prohibits the attachment of tracking devices to passports and accompanying documentation for passport applications. If any passport or documentation is found to have a tracker attached, it will be removed, and the device will not be returned. Your cooperation on this matter is greatly appreciated.

You can book a new appointment through the appointment calendar once your health has recovered. If you are applying for an emergency service that cannot wait, please contact us so we can consider alternative arrangements.
