Americans in need of consular assistance in Vienna can turn to a familiar face: Ronald McDonald.

Under the terms of a partnership between McDonald’s Austria and the U.S. Embassy in Vienna, employees at the chain’s fast-food restaurants in the city will help travelers in need of assistance.

The U.S. ambassador to Austria, Trevor Traina, signed a memorandum with the restaurant company earlier in May.

“American citizens traveling in Austria who find themselves in distress and without a way to contact the U.S. Embassy can enter – as of Wednesday, May 15, 2019 – any McDonald’s in Austria, and staff will assist them in making contact with the U.S. Embassy for consular services,” the embassy said in a post on its Facebook page.
