Processing a U. S. Passport in Santo Domingo
The American Citizens Services (ACS) Unit of the U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo accepts passport applications, provides additional passport pages, and processes amendments to passports as necessary. All passport applicants must apply in person. You need to make an appointment for any passport applications that require an interview (see below criteria).
Passports are delivered via a courier service. The fee is $9.50 for delivery within Santo Domingo or $12.50 for delivery outside of Santo Domingo. Approved passports require three weeks for processing and delivery. American citizens are encouraged to apply early to prevent unforeseen delays and expenses. Lines are shortest and appointments most readily available from September-November and January-March.
Some renewal applicants do not require an interview and qualify for passport drop-off or mail-in service. To see if you qualify for this convenient and expedited service, please go to adult renewals below.
All other passport applicants require a personal interview with a consular officer, also by appointment only. Emergency appointments are available. Emergency circumstances include serious illness, death of an immediate family member, or (for tourists only) previously scheduled return travel to the U.S. after a passport has been lost or stolen. Such passports will be limited in validity, and cannot be extended. You will be asked to provide proof of your emergency. Appointments are available if you have an emergency and require immediate service. Individuals in such situations must first schedule a regular online appointment at the earliest available date and then follow the instructions for emergency appointment requests.
