We accept mail-in adult passport book renewal applications at the U.S. embassy Luxembourg. If you are not eligible to use the mail-in program, please schedule an appointment using our online agenda.


Payment Methods & Details

The U.S. Embassy in Luxembourg accepts payment by credit card (no V-pay card) and cash (Euros or USD). Important: Checks/money orders cannot be accepted.

We are no longer able to accept any U.S. denomination (USD) bank notes that were printed before 1991.

Credit card payments can only be processed in person, the physical card and card holder must be present – we cannot accept credit card details supplied via mail or by phone.

Mobile phones are not permitted in the Embassy, so we can’t process payments through digital wallets such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, or PayPal.

Ensure you are the named card holder and that your credit card is signed before coming to your appointment.

All credit card transactions are processed in U.S. dollars. The actual amount charged to your credit card will reflect your bank’s exchange rate and, possibly, a transaction fee.

NEW! Payment Online for Adult Passport Book Renewals

Adult passport book renewal applicants may pay using the U.S. government’s secure payment site  via U.S. or international credit or debit card, electronic funds transfer from a U.S.-based bank account, Amazon Pay, or PayPal.  Please print your receipt to mail with your application or to bring to your appointment if an appointment is needed.

Other Information

For additional information on emergency passports, please email luxembourgconsular@state.gov

Since we are not able to mail new passports outside of our consular district, people applying for passport renewals who do not have mailing addresses in Luxembourg will be required to collect new passports in person. Your new passport can be collected at the U.S. Embassy on Wednesdays 1:30-2pm (no appointment needed). Please bring your expired or current passport if it was not canceled or bring another photo ID if the consular section retained your passport for processing. Please also bring the pick up bookmark you received at your appointment as proof of payment.

New passports that are not collected within 90 days will, according to regulations, be returned to Washington, DC, and you will have to restart the process, including paying the fee again.
