What Service Do You Require?
Apply for U.S. Citizenship for Minor (under age 18) - Consular Report of Birth
If you are a U.S. citizen and the parent of a child born out of the United States, you can document your child’s U.S. citizenship with a Consular Report of Birth Abroad. Please follow this link to see if you can transmit the U.S. citizenship through U.S. Citizen Services. More information can be found on the U.S. State Department’s website here and here.
Claim to U.S. Citizenship (over age 18)
If you are over the age of 18, were born to a U.S. citizen parent or parents, and believe that you have a claim to U.S. citizenship, please review this website for more information on U.S. nationality law.

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.
If you need reasonable accommodation for your appointment, we encourage you to request your accommodation immediately once you schedule your appointment. We make every effort to provide accommodations to persons with disabilities and medical conditions. Reasonable accommodations vary, depending on the situation and the person’s needs.
Examples of accommodations include, but are not limited to:
- If you require a private appointment due to a medical condition or disability, we may schedule an alternative time for you to come in for your interview.
- If you or your child has special needs that requires a private appointment in a quiet space without distractions, we may schedule an alternative time for you or your family to come in for your interview.
- If you are unable to speak, you may be allowed to respond to questions in an agreed-upon nonverbal manner such as using pen and paper.
- If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you may bring a sign language interpreter to translate during the interview if needed.
- If you have low vision, we may provide you with communications in large print.
If you are unable to provide fingerprints because of a medical condition, including birth defects, physical deformities, skin conditions, you may qualify for a fingerprint waiver for certain fingers.
- Interview waivers are only granted in extreme situations, such as having a medical condition that requires flying in an air ambulance.
The waiting room of the Consular Section and its restroom are wheelchair-accessible.
