According to Section 215 of the U.S Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1185) it is illegal for an U.S. citizen to enter or leave the U.S. on anything other than an U.S. document. This applies to dual citizens as well, meaning that persons holding e.g. both Austrian and U.S. citizenships MUST enter and leave the U.S. on a valid U.S. passport; they may NOT enter/leave the U.S. on an Austrian/foreign passport. This applies to children as well as adults.

NOTE: On return to the European Union the dual national needs to enter the European Union with EU passport. It is illegal to enter the EU as an EU citizen with the U.S. passport.

Effective April 8, 2002, U.S. citizens residing or traveling abroad who require issuance of a U.S. passport will be issued the latest, state-of-the-art passport incorporating a photo-digitized image and other enhanced security features. U.S. Embassies and Consulates will achieve this goal by transferring the passport issuance function to a domestic U.S. passport facility. This will increase processing times at some U.S. Embassies and Consulates, but the Department is committed to ensuring that U.S. citizens are encouraged to apply early for renewal of expiring passports.

U.S. Embassies and Consulates will continue to issue passports in emergency cases. Such passports will be limited in validity, and cannot be extended. Bearers will be required, however, to exchange their limited validity passports for a full-validity photo-digitized passport upon completion of their emergency travel, both through passport facilities in the U.S. and U.S. Embassies and Consulates abroad.

Notarial services are provided by appointment only and cost $ 50.00 (or the equivalent in €) per notarization. Acknowledgment of a signature on documents for use in the United States. Used with deeds, powers of attorney, bills of sale, corporate acknowledgment, etc. Written declaration made under oath of affirmation; a sworn statement. Examples: Marriage affidavit (Ledigkeitsbescheinigung), paternity affidavit, affidavit concerning lost passport, etc.

Note: the Embassy cannot authenticate U.S. documents such as marriage certificates, divorce decrees, death certificates, etc. Under the Hague Convention, an Apostille is issued by the Secretary of State and the Deputy Secretary of State of the individual U.S. state.

Demonstration Notices, Security Notices and Messages for U.S. Citizens, and other important communications are disseminated to U.S. citizens in Austria by means of the Warden System. The Warden System is a network of U.S. volunteers who assist the Embassy in rapidly disseminating official U.S. Government information to U.S. citizens in Austria during emergencies. Receipt of such information, particularly in the absence of functional telecommunications systems, has been critical for U.S. citizens during past emergencies.
