U.S. Citizen Services


All routine consular services are currently suspended due to the Austria COVID-19 lockdown, in effect from November 17 until December 6. U.S. Consulate Vienna is open for emergency services only. If you have an urgent matter or need to travel immediately, please email ConsulateVienna@state.gov.

  • Passport services: During the lockdown, the Consular section will accept passport applications only from citizens whose passports have expired, will expire by Dec. 31, or first-time issuances. If this situation pertains to you, please e-mail us at ConsulateVienna@state.gov.  If your passport expires after Jan. 1, 2021, please use the Appointment system below to schedule an appointment after the lockdown. Thank you for your understanding.
  • Passport Renewal by Mail: If you are renewing an adult 10-year passport (DS-82 application), you do not need to come into the Consulate.  Check requirements for renewal by mail here.  Not only is renewal by mail easier for you, it also avoids COVID risks!  Click here for details.
  • Consular Reports of Birth Abroad: Please contact us at ConsulateVienna@state.gov to discuss your individual case.


All customers are required to schedule an appointment for the following services:

First-time and renewal passport applications*
Minor (children under 16) passport applications
Consular Report of Birth Abroad
Public notary services

*If your last passport was issued after you reached the age of 16, you may apply for a replacement by mail.
