Where is My Passport? Passport Tracking Options

You can track the status of your visa and your passport through our Visa Service Provider.

Go to http://www.ustraveldocs.com/de/de-niv-passporttrack.asp#ChecktheStatusofYourVisa

You can check the status of your visa application any time at this website: https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx

You can chose one of two options to track the location of your passport:

Instant: Enter your passport number in the given field to check on the status.

If your status shows “origination scan”, it means your passport has left the Embassy or Consulate is on its way to the delivery location you have chosen. It is however not available yet.

When the status shows “ready for pick up”, it means that Deutsche Post is about to deliver your passport at the address indicated during the appointment scheduling process or, if a notification has been dropped by the mailman into your mailbox, your passport has been forwarded to the nearest Deutsche Post office and you can pick it up from there.

Email: Send an e-mail to passportstatus@ustraveldocs.com and in the subject and/or body enter a valid passport number exactly as it was entered at the time the appointment was scheduled. Do not include any additional text. You will receive an automatic response with the status.

The Embassy or the Consulate cannot help you regarding the status of your passport delivery. Please do not contact the Embassy or Consulate regarding the status of your passport delivery.
