Passports

Passport & Citizenship Office, American Citizens Services Unit, of the U.S. Embassy, Panama.

This Unit is closed on Panamanian and U.S. holidays.

All passports are printed in the United States and shipped to the Embassy within three weeks of approval of the application. To avoid delays or disruption in travel plans, we urge passport applicants to apply early for new passports and to allow adequate time for processing.

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 (except for Adult Passport Renewal that is by mail only, unless you don’t meet the requirements of this service).

Many countries have passport validity requirements. Before traveling we recommend you visit the Department of State website to ensure that your passport is valid for travel to all countries you will visit.
