The Passport & Citizenship Unit provides passport services to U.S. citizens in the Philippines, at the Embassy in Manila and the Consular Agency in Cebu, by appointment only.

To determine which passport forms you will need to fill out, which original documents to provide, and which procedures you need to follow, please use the Passport Wizard. Then, return to this page for important information on how to either mail your DS-82 renewal to the Embassy, or to schedule an appointment to apply in person with form DS-11 at the U.S. Embassy in Manila or Consular Agency in Cebu.

Please do not make an appointment for a passport service if local COVID-19 restrictions prohibit you from traveling to the Embassy or Consular Agency for your interview.

We are not providing walk-in services at this time in Manila or Cebu.

If you have confirmed travel within the next two weeks, contact the U.S. Embassy in Manila at ACSInfoManila@state.gov to request an appointment for an emergency passport. Write “emergency passport” in the subject line of your email and attach a copy of your current passport and itinerary.
