If you reside in Northern Ireland you are required to apply for the passport at the U.S. Consulate General in Belfast through a pre-arranged appointment. The appointment should be scheduled in the child’s name and the child is required to appear. The parent(s) may add their name as accompanying once the appointment has been scheduled.
Scheduling the Appointment
To book an appointment at the U.S. Consulate General in Belfast, please follow this link. Each applicant requiring a service must have a separate appointment. If you are applying for several members of the same family and you are having difficulty scheduling them all on one day, please contact us through our contact form for assistance.
On scheduling an appointment, a confirmation number will be generated. Please note that you will not receive email confirmation of the appointment. You must make a note of the date and time for your appointment.
You should also take note of the appointment password. You will require the password if you need to cancel the appointment. No record of your password is kept at the Consulate.
Please note that applicants who do not appear at the appointed time will experience considerable delays or their appointment may be cancelled.
Before you visit the Consulate, please refer to Visiting the Consulate General for information about Permitted and Prohibited Items, Who can Attend the Appointment, Directions to the Consulate General, and Disabled Access.
Canceling the Appointment

But please let us know immediately by clicking here, selecting “cancel appointment,” and following the instructions that appear on the screen. By alerting us in advance, you’ll allow us to serve someone else in your place.
