Passport Services

The American Citizen Services (ACS) unit provides passport services, Tuesday – Thursday, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. (except on American and Tajik holidays), by appointment only.  The average passport processing time is 2-4 weeks.  Due to delays in mail services, processing times may be longer in some cases, so we urge everyone to renew passports several months before the expiration date.

PLEASE NOTE: Schedule Changes for September and October

There will be reduced appointment times for standard American Citizen Services (ACS), including passport renewals and registering the birth of U.S. citizen children born abroad (CRBA applications) for several weeks in September and October.  Please plan to schedule appointments in August 2018.

Emergency Passport Requests

If your passport has been lost or was stolen, you may request a temporary, emergency passport for immediate travel.  To make an expedited appointment and to discuss your circumstances, please contact the ACS unit before coming to the U.S. Embassy.  Each request for an emergency passport is considered on a case-by-case basis and, if approved, is usually processed within 24 hours; however, emergency passports cannot be processed outside normal working hours and U.S. and Tajik holidays.
