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.
NOTE: You can expect to be at the Embassy for approximately 2 hours depending on the number of customers.
Scheduling the Appointment
When scheduling the appointment you should make a written note of the following:
- The appointment confirmation number generated.
- The date and time for your appointment. You will not receive email confirmation of the appointment date.
- 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.
You are not required to present a printout of the confirmation sheet on the day of the appointment as your name will be on the access list for that day, although you may wish to keep a copy for your records. Please ensure that you arrive at the Embassy at the appointed time, otherwise we may be required to cancel your appointment.
To book an appointment, please follow this link. Each applicant requiring a service at the Embassy must have a separate appointment.
Please ensure you are booking the correct service. Those seeking Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) or any other notarial services should only select ‘Request notarial and other services not listed above’ when booking an appointment and not choose ‘Passport services’.
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.
