ARE YOU A U.S. CITIZEN WHO NEEDS A PASSPORT?

Please click on “View Local Information” for details on how to apply for a U.S. passport at U.S. Consulate Vienna.  Certain applicants may be eligible to renew their passports by mail.  Passport services are not available on weekends or on Austrian or U.S. holidays.

Processing times vary depending on demand, but our typical turn-around time is 14 days or less. If you are traveling within the next two weeks, please see the Emergency Passports section.

If you already know the form you need to apply, visit the Find the Form You Need section to learn more about completing and submitting the form. If you are unsure which form is needed in your situation, the Passport Wizard can guide you to the correct form.
