Starting November 14, 2016, all appointments for Consular Reports of Birth Abroad (CRBA) at the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa will be made through a “mail-in” appointment scheduling system in order to provide better service to our clients.  The system will reduce the wait time for an appointment and help families better prepare for their citizenship appointment at the Embassy. Please follow the instructions below.

Applicants 18 years old and over, born outside the United States, may claim U.S. citizenship through his/her biological parent who at the time of the applicant’s birth was a United States citizen.  Once the citizenship claim is established, the applicant qualifies for a first-time U.S. passport.  Applicants 18 years old and over are not eligible for issuance of a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA).
