U.S. Embassy Panama
American Citizen Services Unit Outreach in Coronado
Consul James P. O’Brien and U.S. Embassy Panama’s American Citizens Services (ACS) staff will visit Coronado on Wednesday, October 09, 2019. The Consul will host a Town Hall to introduce himself, answer questions, and to hear about your experiences as U.S. citizens living in Coronado from 11:00am-11:30am in the Coronado Luxury Club & Suites, Golf – Beach. We welcome all interested U.S. citizens to attend.
Following the Town Hall, ACS staff will provide limited notary services for use in the United States only from 1:00pm to 2:00pm and DS-11 passport services to U.S. Citizens from 2:00pm to 3:30pm by appointment ONLY.
Please note that due to logistical constraints, we are not able to provide passport renewal services for adults (Form DS-82) at the event. To renew adult passports, please use the passport by mail service.

HOW TO PAY FOR PASSPORT AND NOTARIAL SERVICES (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY):
The Embassy can only accept payment by a cashier’s check from a Panamanian bank (known in Spanish as “Cheque Certificado”) made payable to “U.S. Embassy Panama,” issued within the past five months. Please obtain your cashier’s check in advance of our visit because the local bank was unable to provide same-day service during our last visit. Our office has confirmed with the State Department that, unfortunately, we cannot accept cash, credit card or personal check payments. The notarial fee is $50 per each signature of the Consular Officer. A list of passport fees can be found here.
Attendance at the town hall is free and open to all U.S. citizens and their families.
WHAT TO BRING FOR PASSPORT AND NOTARIAL SERVICES:
Please read all of the following information carefully because you will need all documentation ready for us to process your passports and notarize your documents. We will not have access to photocopiers or computers to assist you with any missing documentation.
For passport renewals for minors, in addition to the completed DS-11 application, bring a copy of the photo page of the minor’s passport, a copy of both parents’ passports/cedulas, one recent color photo with a white background that measures 5×5 cm (2X2 inches) and a copy of the minor’s birth certificate, in addition to the original birth certificate and passport/cedulas. The fee for passport renewal is currently $115.00 for a minor (under 16) and $145.00 (for a minor 16 years of age and older). The minor (under 16) and both parents or guardians must appear in person. If only one parent is present in Panama, the “Statement of Consent from Absent Parent” Form DS-3053, notarized in the United States, is required. Please note that the DS-3053 will not be accepted if notarized in Panama.
For first-time adult passports for individuals 16 or older, in addition to the completed DS-11 application, bring one recent color photo with a white background that measures 5×5 cm (2X2 inches), and a copy and the original of at least one of the following citizenship documents: a previous passport, a certified birth certificate from the U.S., a consular report of birth abroad, a naturalization certificate, and/or a certificate of citizenship.
For lost/stolen passports, in addition to the completed DS-11 application and the DS-64 statement regarding a lost or stolen passport, bring one recent color photo with a white background that measures 5×5 cm (2X2 inches), a Panamanian police report documenting the lost/stolen passport, and documentation of your identity (government-issued identification cards and/or proof of U.S. citizenship). The fee is currently $145 for an adult (over the age of 16) replacement of a lost or stolen passport.
https://pa.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/notaries-public/ is the link with details. Due to pending accreditations to perform local notarial services for use in Panama, our Consular Officer will not be able to accommodate notarial services required by the Panamanian Government, such as notarization of driver’s license or benefits documents. We welcome all other notarial services intended for use in the United States. The notarial fee is $50.00 for each signature of the Consular Officer.
RSVP is encouraged to attend the Town Hall, but not required. This will be the first visit of the Consul to Coronado, so please attend and be prepared to raise any questions or concerns you may have.
We look forward to seeing you there!
