Veterans Affairs

The U.S. Embassy in San Salvador does not function as a Veteran’s Affairs Assistance Unit.

Veterans may apply for benefits online from overseas using their home computer. The Veterans Online Application (VONAPP) requires that you have one of four specific browsers installed on your computer and a minimum capability of 128-bit encryption. If you do not currently have the correct browser, you can download one for free from the Veteran’s Benefits website. The Veteran’s Benefits website will tell you if you need to download encryption software, and they will provide a free downloadable link if this is the case. Please note that the encryption may not work in all countries.

Even though our help in Veteran Affairs is limited, you can contact us at and we will do our best to assist you.
