Passport Services

Welcome to the Passport & Citizenship Unit of the U.S. Embassy in Mexico.  We provide services for United States Citizens in Mexico from our offices in Mexico City, Ciudad Juarez, Guadalajara, Hermosillo, Matamoros, Merida, Monterrey, Nogales, Nuevo Laredo, and Tijuana.

Fee increase

Effective April 2, 2018, the passport execution fee will increase from $25 to $35.  The $10 execution fee increase applies to U.S. passport applicants using the DS-11 form including: first-time applicants over age 16, children under age 16, and applicants who reapply after reporting their previous passport lost or stolen.Customers applying with the DS-11 form at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad pay two separate fees: an application fee to the U.S. Department of State and the execution fee to the Passport Acceptance Facility (such as a post office in the United States or a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad).  Accordingly, the total passport fee for such applicants will increase by $10 in total.

The $10 fee increase does not apply to adults eligible to renew their passport using the DS-82 form. The Department of State published a Final Rule confirming this fee change on January 31, 2018. For questions, please contact your nearest consulate.

** APPOINTMENTS REQUIRED **

Please note:  There is no walk-in service for United States citizens who require a service related to passports, citizenship or birth registration.  These services are by appointment only.

Passport services are NOT available on weekends, or on Mexican or U.S. holidays. Note: All applicants must be present, no matter the age.

The processing time for routine passport renewals is 3-4 weeks.

If you are traveling within the next 2 weeks, please see ” Emergency Travel”  on the right-hand side of this page for further information.   

The increase in demand may lead to longer processing times, so we encourage you to apply for your passport well in advance of your travel plans.
