Apply for or renew a U.S. Passport

ANNOUNCEMENT: U.S. Embassy Belgium accepts online fee payments for adult U.S. passport renewal applications.  We do not accept checks as a form of payment.  We encourage all adults renewing 10-year passport books to apply by mail.  For all in-person services, one must schedule an appointment.

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.

Please note that the Embassy is closed on Belgian and American holidays.


Check your local embassy’s website on how to make an appointment, or in some cases, drop off your passport application. Walk-in services may not be available. Passport services are not available on weekends or on Belgium or U.S. holidays.

Processing times vary depending on demand. If you are traveling within the next two weeks, please see the Emergency Passports section.

If you already know the form you need to apply, visit the Find the Form You Need section to learn more about completing and submitting the form. If you are unsure which form is needed in your situation, the Passport Wizard can guide you to the correct form.
