U.S. Citizen Services

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 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 do not submit your passport for renewal at this time.

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.
