Passport Information

Applying for a U.S. Passport

As of September 1, 2011, American citizens requiring passport renewals, additional passport pages, and replacement for lost or stolen passports must schedule an appointment online.  Appointments are available Monday through Thursday, except for U.S. and Lebanese holidays.  Applicants who are late for their appointment will be asked to reschedule for another day.

Proof of Identity and Citizenship

To issue an American passport, we must have proof of identity and citizenship.  If you are renewing a valid or recently expired passport, your passport will serve as proof of both identity and citizenship.  Otherwise, to prove citizenship, you need to provide a certified copy of your birth certificate, certificate of naturalization, or other similar documents. 

Applications by U.S. citizen minors under the age of 16

  1. Child must be present.
  2. Child's official, original birth certificate.
  3. Previous U.S. passport.
  4. One matte photo (see photo requirements).
  5. Both parents must be present with identification, preferably in English. Names of parents on the identification should match their names as shown on the child's birth certificate.
  6. If one parent is residing outside of Lebanon, that parent must complete and notarize Form DS 3053 (PDF 157kb) in the presence of an American Notary Public or American Consular Officer giving permission to the other parent to renew the child's passport.
  7. In case of death of one parent, the custodial parent should submit a Death Certificate.
  8. In case of divorce, both parents' signature or DS-3053 (PDF 157kb) must still be presented unless one parent has sole custody. A divorce decree with custody authority granted by an appropriate court is required as proof of sole custody, with translation into English by a sworn translator.
  9. Photos of the progressive aging and physical changes of the child if the photo shown on the old passport does not reflect current physical appearance.
  10. Complete Form DS-11 (PDF 1001kb).
  11. Fee of US $105 or the equivalent of the whole amount in Lebanese currency.

In order to facilitate the payment process, we strongly encourage you to bring the exact amount.
