Due to technical difficulties, the U.S. Embassy in Guatemalan cannot currently accept credit cards for payment. We believe this to be a temporary problem and hope to reinstate this service within the next 10 days. In the meantime, please plan to have an alternative form of payment available. Thank you for your patience.
