Passport Services

The United States Consulate General in Amsterdam provides passport services for U.S. Citizens both traveling and residing in the Netherlands. All services related to passports, citizenship, or birth registration are by appointment only.  We are open for appointments Monday to Thursday. We are closed to the public on U.S. and Dutch public holidays. The Embassy in The Hague does not provide consular services.

Avoid stress! Apply early
Many countries require all travelers to have at least six (6) months of remaining validity on their passport from their date of entry.  Additionally, many airlines will not allow a passenger to board a plane if there is insufficient validity. To avoid delays, double check your passport’s expiration date and apply for a new passport if you are within 8 months of the passport expiring.  Avoid travel stress, apply on time.  Get your new passport, then book your trip.  Remember, children’s passports are only valid for five years!  All passports issued overseas will have 52 pages.

U.S. citizens in transit and who need to replace a lost or stolen passport, do not need an appointment but must be able to prove they are in transit, e.g. by presenting a boarding pass, e-ticket, etc. 

If you are traveling within the next two weeks but don’t have a valid passport, please go to the ”Emergency Passports” section.

FOR SPEEDY SERVICE YOU ARE REQUESTED TO BRING A PLAIN PHOTO COPY OF EVERY ORIGINAL DOCUMENT YOU WILL PRESENT WITH YOUR APPLICATION.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND COOPERATION.
