Lost US passport in Austria? Go to McDonald's for help
Lost and hungry for help? American citizens who find themselves in distress in Austria can now seek support at an unusual address -- McDonald's.
Good news US citizens!
Under a new partnership, outlets of the US fast food chain throughout Austria will help American citizens to get in touch with their embassy.
How will McDonald's help the needy?
Staff (at any McDonald's in Austria) will assist them in making contact with the US Embassy for consular services.
AgenciesConsular services include reporting a lost or stolen passport or seeking travel assistance.
The US embassy did not immediately return a request for comment if Austria was the only country offering such services at McDonald's.
Facebook users commenting on the post wasted no time in coining terms such as 'McVisa' and 'McPassport'.
