We strongly recommend that you renew your passport early so that you do not need an emergency passport. It takes currently six (6) to eight (8) weeks for full validity passports to arrive in our office from the United States.
Please be aware that emergency passport issuance is not guaranteed. By applying for an emergency passport, you risk having to change your travel plans. Therefore, you should only purchase airline tickets after checking that your family’s passports are valid.
Emergency passports are intended for U.S. citizens who need to travel immediately to the United States due to an unexpected incident or for U.S. citizen tourists whose passports were lost or stolen during their travels.
Emergency passports are issued and can be picked up the day after the appointment.
