The United States Congress did not pass legislation enabling funding of U.S. government operations by the midnight September 30th?Washington D.C. (EST) deadline which resulted in a partial ?shutdown? of the U.S. government.
?The lapse in funding will not affect consular services provided by the U.S. Embassy in Suva but some Embassy activities will be limited.
The Embassy will maintain normal business hours and continue regular consular operations (American citizen services, tourist visas, etc).? For information about how the Embassy is able to stay OPEN during a ?shutdown? review this?guidance.
