Processing Times & Return of Documents

Processing time for a complete Consular Report of Birth Abroad and First Passport is approximately 15 business days. Incomplete applications take much longer so please take care to submit all the required documents at the time of your appointment.

The documents will be returned to you by the Swedish Postal Service by Recommended (REK) mail. Please include a C4 size envelope with a ‘Skicka Direkt’ label.

Order Shipment Label

Choose the weight of 250g and REK postage (Please note that 100g is not enough to ship the Consular Report of Birth Abroad and passport):

Use the following From/Från address:

US Embassy, Attn. ACS
Dag Hammarskjöld väg 31
SE-115 89 Stockholm

The recipient (Till) is the person to which you would like your passport to be delivered (that is the name of the passport holder for an adult and the name of a parent for a minor).

If no envelope with shipment label covering registered mail  is submitted, the Embassy will be unable to process the application.
