American tourists visiting Austria will soon be able to get more than a Big Mac at one of the country’s McDonald’s restaurants.

According to USA Today, the U.S. Embassy in Vienna, Austria announced via their Facebook page McDonald’s restaurants in Austria will start operating as mini U.S. embassies.

“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 Facebook post read.

This means American travelers in Austria who need help with a stolen, or lost passport for example can visit any McDonald’s location for assistance.
