Passport Services
Apply for or renew a U.S. Passport

Please note that due to the recent increase in COVID-19 infections in Qatar, the U.S. Embassy has suspended all routine consular services, including American Citizens Services (ACS) appointments through January 20, 2022. The ACS Unit will continue to handle emergency cases.  If a U.S. citizen needs a passport for travel happening in the next 14 days, they should email ACSDoha@state.gov with the scanned documentation showing that their trip has been booked and paid in full.  If travel is more than two weeks away, passport applicants may schedule a passport appointment via the link below.  Notarial services are suspended, except for passport renewal consent forms (DS-3053 “Statement of Consent” for minor passport applications).  If you require an appointment to sign a DS-3053 urgently, please email ACSDoha@state.gov with a brief explanation of the situation.  We will resume routine services as soon as we are able to do so safely. 


Passport applicants are required to complete an online form and print it out for submission.




New entry requirements for travelers to the United States go into effect on November 8. Before planning any travel, please visit the CDC’s website detailing requirements and the Department of State’s FAQ page on the changes.


Governments around the world, including Qatar, continue to make changes to public health and travel policies in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19. The Embassy recommends that U.S. citizens in Qatar remain vigilant regarding these policies.

  • If you are unable to speak, you may be allowed to respond to questions in an agreed-upon nonverbal manner such as using pen and paper.
  • If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you may bring a sign language interpreter to translate during the interview if needed.
