WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND MY APPOINTMENT?
After completing your application and receiving an appointment date, you will need to come IN PERSON to Washington D.C.
During your appointment, the consular section clerical staff will take your fingerprints, signature and passport photos, as well as verify all of your documents, so you MUST present all original copies of your documents.
Remember the dress code for your passport photo. Try not to wear overly revealing clothing that may expose your shoulders and avoid V-neck shirts and low-cut necklines.
Additionally, you will need to bring a payment to cover the $50 consular identification card fee to your appointment.
When everything is completed, all you have to do is patiently wait. When your new passport arrives here at the Embassy, we will get in touch with you to make shipping or pick-up arrangements. Shipping costs will be covered by the applicant.
