Passports

Advance online appointment is required for all routine passport application services.  Please make an appointment online using the Online Appointment System. Due to unreliable postal service in the country, the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Tashkent does not process passport applications by mail and requires applicants to appear in person to apply for a passport renewal.  Please see the below categories for more information on applying for U.S. passports.

Important notice:  Effective April 2, 2018, the passport execution fee will increase from $25 to $35 for U.S. passport applicants using the DS-11 form, including first-time applicants over age 16, children under age 16, and applicants who reapply after reporting their previous passport lost or stolen.  Accordingly, the total passport fee for such applicants will increase by $10.  For more details, please visit the official website of the Bureau of Consular Affairs at travel.state.gov.

Note on Passport Photographs

U.S. passport photographs are different from Uzbek passport photos and many photographers in Uzbekistan are not familiar with U.S. passport photo specifications. We strongly recommend that you learn the photo requirements for U.S. passports before you go the photographer. 

Adding Visa Pages

The Department of State discontinued the consular service of adding additional visa pages to U.S. passports beginning January 1, 2016.
