All applicants outside of the United States should submit their passport renewal application at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate. If your passport has expired, or is about to expire, you must get a new one. You can renew your passport even if it has not expired, but has run out of pages.
All passport applications in non-emergency cases must be submitted by appointment only. Appointments are available Mondays and Wednesdays, between 1:30 and 3:00 p.m. and can be made online at the Embassy’s ACS Online Appointment System. Follow the directions outlined on the Department of State website and submit all forms in person.
Adult passport renewals can be submitted by someone acting on the applicant’s behalf with a signed letter of authorization from the applicant and a completed, signed application form.
Expedited processing is not available for passports when you apply from outside the United States. All passports requested from overseas are printed in the U.S. and then sent to your embassy or consulate. This takes roughly two to three weeks.
If your passport has been lost or stolen please contact us for an emergency passport.
