Is the info not otherwise readily available? This all makes it sound very cloak and dagger.


And yeah, of all the dangerous countries in the world, Austria is where you’d need to go to the American embassy…


Commonwealth citizens can contact a British embassy or consulate if one for their own country is unavailable for any reason.


Anyone who would know this arcane fact would be savvy enough to figure out how to get the number on their own.


Can just imagine hundreds of confused Austrian McDonald’s employees wondering why some annoying fucking tourist is demanding the number of the embassy from them tomorrow.
