US Passport Update

Thursday, 09 April 2020

Emergency Travel Only

The State Department has stopped issuing passports except for cases of a "life-or-death" emergency among family members abroad.

"Due to public health measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, effective March 20, 2020, we are only able to offer service for customers with a qualified life-or-death emergency and who need a passport for immediate international travel within 72 hours," the State Department says.

Emergencies that qualify for an immediate passport include serious illnesses, injuries, or deaths affecting a "parent, child, spouse, sibling, aunt, uncle, etc.," which require travel outside of the U.S.
