  • Make a positive impact as a Consular Fellow using your language proficiency in Spanish, Mandarin, Portuguese, and Arabic.


    Stationed at U.S. embassies and consulates around the world, this opportunity for public service allows employees to experience new cultures while making a difference in the world. We are looking for motivated, culturally aware, adaptable problem-solvers who have sound judgment and strong customer service skills and can retain their composure during stressful circumstances.


    On the frontlines of diplomacy, Consular Fellows adjudicate visa applications of foreign citizens seeking to come to the United States to visit, study, and work, and assist U.S. citizens traveling or living abroad. Fellows work to prevent fraud, combat trafficking in persons, and protect U.S. border security, which directly supports the Department of State’s mission to provide overseas consular services that protect U.S. citizens, ensure U.S. national security, facilitate the entry of legitimate travelers, and foster economic growth at home.


    Fellows have the opportunity to experience life in the Foreign Service and try out the career since the Consular Fellows Program is a limited non-career appointment of up to five years. Working together with dedicated professionals, this public service opportunity provides valuable professional experience and you will develop and apply a wide range of skills, from managing resources to conducting public outreach. New hire Consular Fellows will be eligible for an incentive equal to 10% of their basic salary and may be eligible for the Student Loan Repayment Program.
