On November 2, the Consular Team from the U.S. Embassy Manama brought passport services to U.S. Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT). This was an opportunity for the base community to renew their passports or get a first one easily.
The Consular Section offers the following services to American citizens: it accepts passport applications for first-time applicants and those who want to renew passports or add pages, registers the birth of children with a Consular Report of Birth Abroad certificate, provides notarial services for U. S. citizens as well as foreign nationals who will use certain documents in the United States, provides a list of attorneys, offers medical information for American citizens in Bahrain, and aids those who are applying for Social Security benefits while overseas.
