ARE YOU A U.S. CITIZEN WHO NEEDS A PASSPORT?

Check your local embassy’s website on how to make an appointment, or in some cases, drop off your passport application. Walk-in services may not be available. Passport services are not available on weekends or on [country] or U.S. holidays.

Processing times vary depending on demand. If you are traveling within the next two weeks, please see the Emergency Passports section.

If you already know the form you need to apply, visit the Find the Form You Need section to learn more about completing and submitting the form. If you are unsure which form is needed in your situation, the Passport Wizard can guide you to the correct form.
