US Embassy in Skopje: Visa, emergency service to continue for US citizens

US Embassy in Skopje: Visa, emergency service to continue for US citizens

Skopje, 20 January 2018 (MIA) - Scheduled passport and visas services, and emergency services for US citizens, will continue at the Embassy during the US government shutdown, the US Embassy in Skopje said Saturday via Twitter. 

'We will not be updating this account regularly, except in the event of an emergency,' it said.

The US government has begun shutting down many of its services after the Senate failed to agree on a new budget.

It is the first shutdown ever to happen while the same party, the Republicans, controls Congress and the White House.

The impasse will affect hundreds of thousands of federal workers, and the recriminations have already begun.

The last government shutdown was in 2013, and lasted for 16 days. lk/16:13
