Fees

All fees for consular services must be paid in full at the time of service in either USD or the equivalent CFA( we don’t take credit card, we only accept cash).  The exchange rate is set by U.S. Embassy Cotonou.  Clients paying fees in CFA may face a rate slightly less favorable than the market exchange rate.  The Consular cashier will provide you with the CFA rate at the time of payment. The Consular Cashier is open during ACS hours on Thursdays from 1:30 to 4PM.

Note: The U.S. Embassy Cotonou is no longer accepting the $100 bills dated before 2006.
