We hope you’re all having a safe start to month of Ramadan! Here at the U.S. Consulate, we are keeping normal operating hours, however not all of our staff are. We will get to phone calls as soon as possible and your emailed inquires as per our normal same day or next day standard. Ramadan Mubarak!

Do you know your sponsor’s plan in the event of a crisis? This last weekend the U.S. Consulate in Dhahran hosted a Crisis Management Exercise for Wardens in the Eastern Province which helped Wardens understand the Consulate’s role in a crisis and evaluate their own emergency preparedness measures. If you’re unclear about communication procedures during a crisis or would like to evaluate your own emergency preparedness plan, contact your sponsor!
