Passport Services

Due to COVID-19 and limited staffing, the United States Embassy in Pristina is focused on providing emergency services for U.S. citizens. However, if your passport has expired or will expire in the next six months, or you wish to document your newborn child as a U.S. citizen, please contact PristinaACS@state.gov to schedule an appointment. Please note that U.S. Embassy is not authorized to provide notarial appointments at this time. 

Before scheduling your appointment, please read the instructions below thoroughly. Incomplete applications will result in delays and possible need for a second appointment. A tourist passport takes approximately two to three weeks to process.  Please apply in advance (up to one year prior to expiration). All regular U.S. citizen services are by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, please proceed here. Information about third party attendance at passport and CRBA appointment interviews is available here.
