Passport Services


Effective April 2, 2018, the passport execution fee will increase from $25 to $35.  The $10 execution fee increase applies to U.S. passport applicants using the DS-11 form including: first-time applicants over age 16, children under age 16, and applicants who reapply after reporting their previous passport lost or stolen.

Customers applying with the DS-11 form at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad pay two separate fees: an application fee to the U.S. Department of State and the execution fee to the Passport Acceptance Facility (such as a post office in the United States or a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad).  Accordingly, the total passport fee for such applicants will increase by $10 in total.

The $10 fee increase does not apply to adults eligible to renew their passport using the DS-82 form. The Department of State published a Final Rule confirming this fee change on January 31, 2018.

For questions, please contact us at or 021-213715, ext. 2105.

If you arrive at the consulate for any non-emergency passport service without an appointment, you will be asked to return after securing an appointment. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy, which will ensure that services are offered in a more efficient manner, with shorter wait times.  Please note that failure to renew a passport in a timely manner prior to your travel is not an emergency service, and you will need an appointment to receive a new passport.

As we have limited cash on hand please bring exact change or pay with credit card.

If you require further information, please call our office at (595) (21) 213-715 ext. 2105 during the following hours: Monday through Thursday 8:00AM to noon and 8:00AM to 11:00AM on Friday.

To shorten the time spent at the Embassy, we recommend you complete and print all necessary passport forms using the Passport Wizard and bring them to your appointment.
