Passports

General Information

The Consular Section accepts passport applications and can add extra visa pages to passports.  A passport renewal normally takes 2 weeks to process.

Two passport photos are required to apply for a passport.  

Please visit the Passport Wizard to complete the correct passport forms.  Please print the form and submit it at your appointment.

In compliance with the Two-Parent Signature Consent Law, both parents of minors under 16 years old must be present to sign the passport application and produce a certified or original birth certificate establishing the parental relationship.  An absent parent should submit a signed DS-3053 giving permission for the issuance of a passport to the minor child.  An applicant who is 14 years or older must sign his/her own application.

First time passport applications can also be accepted in the Consular Section for newborn Americans.  American citizens born outside of the U.S. must first obtain a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA).  

If your child was born in Mozambique and you wish to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad please email us at consularmaputo@state.gov to make an appointment and for information and documentation requirements.

Emergency Passports are issued only in cases of extreme hardship or emergency and have limited validity.

Additional Passport Pages. This process takes 30 minutes and costs $82 dollars. Please note that if the passport holder is under 16 years of age, one parent must sign the application. It is not necessary for the minor child to appear at the Embassy.
