Passport Services

Passport applications can be submitted on Tuesdays. Please book one appointment for each individual requiring a service. On the right you will find a link to our appointment system.

The Passport Wizard will determine the correct application form you should use. The consular section is only able to accept complete applications with  one 2″x 2″ (51x51mm) U.S. passport size photo: photo must have clear white background, no shadows, no eye glasses to be worn.  You can find all passport photo requirements here.

Important notice regarding electronic devices: The US Embassy does not permit laptops or large electrical/electronic devices to be brought into the consular waiting room.  Please do not bring your electronic devices to your visa interview or any other appointment you have with the Consular Section.  The Embassy provides no storage for your electronic devices and customers coming to their appointment with a prohibited item(s) will not be permitted to enter the Embassy.

Passport Processing Times: Regular passports are produced at a central processing location in the United States. Processing time for applications submitted in Luxembourg is generally 7-10 business days. To avoid unnecessary complications in your travel plans please note that expedited processing can only be requested for applications submitted in the U.S.  The Embassy in Luxembourg can issue a limited validity passport in case of emergency.

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