Imminent Departure — If You Need a Passport on Short Notice
If you need a passport within the next two weeks, e.g. because you have an emergency situation, your application will require a personal appearance.
Please bring the following with you:
- Either the DS-82 passport application form (if you have an undamaged, full validity, 10 year passport issued within the last 15 years) OR a DS-11 passport application form (for all others) – see also our section on children’s passports for additional requirements for children;
- Your old passport – click here if your passport was lost or stolen;
- One U.S. format (2″x2″ /5cm.x5cm.) color photo (see photo requirements and list of specialized photographers). Belgian format photos cannot be processed!
- The appropriate Passport Services fee must be paid in cash, euro or dollars, or by credit card.
