Emergency Passports

The U.S. Embassy may issue an emergency passport for immediate travel due to illness or death or to allow a visitor in Asuncion to return to the United States or to continue with onward travel when the passport has been lost or stolen.

Emergency passports are limited in validity and must be replaced as soon as you conclude your emergency travel.

If you have an urgent travel need for the reasons stated above and do not find a suitable appointment date, you may come to the Embassy without an appointment.  You can come Monday through Thursday from 1:00 until 3:30 pm for this specific service.  Please remember that the Embassy is closed on all Paraguayan and American holidays.

If you are an American citizen with an after-hours emergency, please call (595-21) 213-715 and press “0” to be connected to the Operator.

You must be prepared to submit the correct application forms and requirements, and evidence of your immediate travel needs when you arrive at the American Citizen Services Unit. Please check the following link for requirements.
