Yemen Embassy appointments…taking someone with you?

If you make an appointment for the US embassy in Sana’a (which is done by email) be sure to tell them who, if anyone will be gwith you. They no longer allow people to come with you if you haven’t told them previously that they were coming. My 15 year old son who was just accompanying me, had to go back home because they wouldn’t let him in.

The security at the embassy is much, much better masha Allah,  following the most recent attacks (September 17, 2008).


Also,  leaving a contact number in your email as well would be a good idea.
