Where and When to Apply

DO NOT SEND YOUR APPLICATION TO THE UNITED STATES!  Do not go to the U.S. Embassy in The Hague/Wassenaar!

Only the U.S. Consulate General in Amsterdam provides consular services, e.g. passport services, notary services, visa services, etc.
All visitors are subject to our access and security regulations, and all visits to the Consulate General in Amsterdam must be by appointment*.

U.S. citizens can apply for a new passport at any time.  It is best to renew your passport 8 months prior to the expiry date or if you only have 8 blank visa pages left. Pages cannot be added.

On every instructions page you will find a link to the appointment website for the service you require.

*Notary appointments are on a walk-in basis (see our notarial services page). For genuine emergencies involving a U.S. citizen, if no regular appointment is available at short notice, please send an e-mail with all pertinent details about the situation and attach supporting documentation, e.g. proof of the emergency, travel itinerary, etc.
