March, April, and May are our busiest months for passport applications. Please follow the below tips to ensure an efficient process:
- Complete the passport application online and then print it rather than downloading the pdf and completing it by hand
- Apply for passports as soon as possible, do not wait until the last minute
- Ensure you have all the documents, fees, and photographs as listed in the service sections at the bottom of this page
- Do not bring laptops, cameras, or any other electronic devices to the embassy (cellphones may be stored at the entrance)
All U.S. passports must be sent with registered mail (rekommenderad) within Sweden. We cannot accept stamps or any other form of shipment. Failure to submit a shipment label according to the instructions will only result in delays.
Application forms and a comprehensive overview on applying for a passport outside of the United States can be found on the Department of State’s travel website.
All passport applications are forwarded by the Embassy to the U.S. for passport printing. DO NOT SEND YOUR APPLICATIONS DIRECTLY TO THE U.S. More information can be found by selecting your specific passport service from the menu below.
Upon receiving a complete application the processing time for a passport is approximately 15 business days.
