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.
We encourage you to use our Passport Wizard to fill out your passport application. Completing your application online and printing it will help assure timely and accurate processing. Helpful note: For the emergency contact address, choosing any state from the drop-down menu will allow you to enter a non-U.S. address in the address field.
- 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.
- All passport are returned via UPS. UPS charges a fee for the service on delivery.
