Emergency Passport

The Embassy can issue limited validity passports (emergency passports) under very specific and limited circumstances. In most cases, emergency passports can be issued same day. If you believe you have a qualifying circumstance, please book an appointment.  If no appointments are available, you can inquire about an emergency appointment at BeirutACS@state.gov.

Application requirements, including fees, for emergency passports are the same as those for full-validity passports. For a list of required documents, please return to the Passport Index page and select the service you require from the list.

Note: When you come in to apply for your emergency passport at the Embassy/Consulates, please make sure to present the evidence of your pressing travel situation such as a copy of your flight information/e-ticket along with the required application documents.
