Passport Services

  • Please fill out Form DS-11.
  • Schedule an appointment online.
  • Bring one 2” x 2” photo on a white background, the DS-11, an original or certified copy of a birth certificate (copies will not be accepted) or a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, and a second form of valid photo ID with a signature to your appointment.

Fill out Form DS-82. Please note that you qualify to use Form DS-82 only if the following conditions apply to your most recently issued passport:

    • Undamaged (other than normal “wear and tear”)
    • Issued when you were age 16 or older
    • Issued within the last 15 years
    • Issued in your current name (or you can document your name change with an original or certified copy of your marriage certificate, divorce decree, or court order)

You may circumvent an in-person appointment at the embassy by delivering the following application materials via the Consular Dropbox located by the visitor’s parking lot. Please place the materials in one of the clear plastic envelopes adjacent to the Dropbox and then place the envelope inside the box.

    • Completed DS-82 form
    • 2” x 2” photo on a white background. No eyeglasses, please.
    • Photocopy of your most recently issued passport, whether regular (blue), official (brown), or diplomatic (black).
    • Money order issued by Navy Federal Credit Union or United States Postal Service for $110 (passport book only), $30 (passport card only), or $140 (passport book and card), payable to U.S. Embassy—Manama, Bahrain.

If you utilize our Dropbox service, you must appear in person to pick up your new passport in order to present the passport which was relied upon for utilization of Form DS-82. If you do not bring the current passport, you cannot receive the new one. If you relied upon an official or diplomatic passport as the basis of Form DS-82 and also have a valid regular passport, you must also bring the regular passport for cancellation.

If you choose to schedule an appointment online and appear in person for your passport application, please bring your most recent passport with you, regardless of whether it is current/expired, and regular/official.

If you are a military member with a valid FPO address and you appear in person for your passport appointment, you may qualify for FPO delivery service. Please inquire at the time of your appointment.

  • A U.S. Passport Card can be used to enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda at land border crossings or sea ports-of-entry and is more convenient and less expensive than a passport book. The passport card cannot be used for international travel by air.
