Passport Services
Apply for or renew a U.S. Passport


If you require a new passport, a renewal passport, or just aren’t sure, our simple Passport Wizard will assist you in determining your eligibility and gathering the documentation needed to apply.

There is limited walk-in service for certain renewals of adult passports.  All other applicants, including minors, must make an appointment for any  services related to passports, citizenship, or birth registration. These services are by appointment only.  Please visit our appointment website here: https://evisaforms.state.gov to make an appointment.

Passport services are not available on weekends, or on Ivoirian or American federal holidays.

The processing time for routine passport renewals is 3-4 weeks. If you are traveling within the next 2 weeks, please see Emergency Passports for further information.
