Passport Services

Limited passport services available.  The U.S. Embassy in Ankara, the U.S. Consulate General in Istanbul, and U.S. Consular Agency in Izmir can assist you with a limited validity passport for an adult or minor if you have an urgent need to travel.  We can make limited appointments for accepting full validity passport applications, for other urgent reasons, such as Turkish residency renewal, but please note that the printing facilities in the United States which produce passport and certificates of birth abroad closed for routine services in March, and on June 10 announced resumption of phased printing services; but we cannot give you an expected timeline for receiving your printed document from the United States.  As we follow CDC guidelines for phased reopenings at our domestic and overseas operations, we will update this website. 

Applying for a U.S. passport abroad is a different process from applying for one in the United States. The application forms, required documentation, and costs are the same, but expedited services are not available.

Please use our Passport Wizard to fill out your passport application. Completing your application online and printing it will help assure timely and accurate processing. Note: you cannot currently list a “Country” when completing the “Emergency Contact” section on our forms. Please list an emergency contact in the United States.


  • If your passport has already expired, it cannot be extended.  You must apply for a new passport.
  • To renew a passport for a child under the age of 16, please follow the instructions for a minor passport application.
  • If your child received a passport between age 0 and 5 and they are applying for a passport renewal, please provide yearly photographs to demonstrate the change in appearance.
  • The processing time for passports is two to three weeks. The processing time for passport cards is one month.
