If you reside in England or Wales you are required to apply for the passport at the U.S. Embassy in London through a pre-arranged appointment. If more than one person requires a service, each must have a separate appointment.
NOTE: You can expect to be at the Embassy for approximately 2 hours depending on the number of customers. Please be aware that wait times are longer for first time applicants and Consular Reports of Birth Abroad.
Scheduling the Appointment
To book an appointment, please follow this link. Each applicant requiring a service at the Embassy must have a separate appointment.
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 Embassy.
Please note that applicants who do not appear at the appointed time will experience considerable delays or their appointment may be cancelled.
Canceling the Appointment
If your plans have changed and you need to postpone or cancel your appointment, that’s no problem. 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.
