COVID-19 Update: January 6, 2021.
The German Federal and State authorities announced an extension of the additional pandemic restrictions through January 31, 2021; therefore the U.S. Embassy in Berlin and consulates in Germany are closed for routine passport, Consular Reports of Birth Abroad, visa, and notarial appointments. Please note that walk-in hours at the Consulate Frankfurt for marriage affidavits and passport renewals have also been suspended until further notice.
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. Please do not submit your passport for renewal at this time.
