U.S. Citizen Services


The mission of the American Citizen Services (ACS) Unit at the U.S. Embassy in Kuala Lumpur is to provide information and assistance to American citizens traveling and residing in Malaysia.  In these pages you will find general information about the ACS unit, including hours of service and location and contact details, as well as information on the services we can provide.

We also encourage all Americans residing or traveling abroad to register with the nearest U.S. Embassy.  The service is free and fast, and allows us to get in touch with you in an emergency, and provide information on security conditions and upcoming events of interest to Americans. You can help ensure your own security by monitoring this site and U.S. Department of State's travel website for updated information about conditions in Malaysia and around the world.
