U.S. Citizen Services

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 BerlinFrankfurt, 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 monitor the Robert Koch Institute for current information on COVID-19 in Germany in both English and German. Check our website for the latest information about COVID-19 and our operations.
