Appointments for routine ACS services

Effective July 1, 2023, U.S. Embassy Tunis is using a new online appointment self-scheduler for all routine ACS services including passports and notarials. To make your appointment, please visit this link and select Tunisia.

To apply for and schedule an appointment for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA), please click here.

After scheduling your appointment, come to the Embassy at the appointed day and time with all of your application forms and required original documents, photocopies of original documents, as well as any additional documents requested by consular staff.All applications for Consular Reports of Birth Abroad (CRBA) and passports require an appointment, with the exception of certain DS-82 passport renewals–see here for more information. New passports take approximately three weeks to arrive in our office. You should apply at least one month in advance of any planned travel to allow time for your new passport to arrive. Please be aware that all U.S. citizens must be in possession of a valid U.S. passport to enter and exit the United States.

Children born abroad for whom one or both parents are U.S. citizens may have a claim to U.S. citizenship. If the parents meet the legal requirements to transmit citizenship to their child, the American Citizen Services (ACS) Unit will issue a CRBA. The parents may also obtain a U.S. passport for the child. For details on the requirements for transmitting citizenship, please click here.

We recommend that you report the birth of your child as soon as possible after birth. It is not normally possible to issue a Consular Report of Birth Abroad for a child who is over the age of 18, but the child may still be documented as a U.S. citizen and issued a passport.

Please note that the previous email scheduling system is no longer in use and emails to that inbox are not monitored.

In addition, please take note of the following points:

  • If your child qualifies for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, you may also apply for a passport for him/her. For details on the requirements for a passport application, please click here.
  • Only one U.S. citizen parent and the child need to come to the Consular Section to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad. However, if you are also applying for a passport for your child, the child must be present and both parents must either appear or provide notarized consent for the passport’s issuance. For further information, please visit this page.

Please note that the American Citizen Services section of the US Embassy Tunis will be closed on the following days:
