COVID-19 Update: January 6, 2021.
Due to additional pandemic restrictions enacted by the German government beginning December 16, 2020 the U.S. Embassy in Berlin and consulates in Germany are closed for routine passport, Consular Reports of Birth Abroad, visa, and notarial appointments.
If you have an immediate need to travel and have a confirmed flight to the United States, or other urgent need for a passport, please email Berlin, Frankfurt, or Munich and request an emergency passport appointment. We are unable to offer call-in hours at this time but will answer your email promptly.
If you have previously applied for a passport or citizenship service in person or by mail, you should expect a significant delay in receiving your passport and your citizenship evidence documents.
