ANNOUNCEMENT: Beginning September 25, 2021, Mission UAE will begin accepting online fee payments for adult U.S. passport renewal applications. Paying online allows you to mail your application to the U.S. Embassy without the need to apply in person. Please see our Passport Renewal Services by Mail and Passport Renewal Services by Drop-Box webpage to determine if you are eligible for online fee payment.
U.S. citizens residing or traveling abroad who require a U.S. passport are issued the latest state-of-the-art passports that incorporate photo-digitized images and other enhanced security features. These passports are produced at a domestic U.S. passport facility. U.S. citizens are encouraged to apply early for renewal of expiring passports. Applying late could result in delayed travel itineraries and/or difficulties with local residency requirements.
Reminder for Dual National U.S. Citizens: U.S. law requires all U.S. citizens, including dual-national citizens, to enter the United States using their U.S. passport. We urge all U.S. citizens to keep their U.S. passports current.
