Passport Services

The U.S. Consul will be in Gothenburg on May 17, 2019 to take applications for reports of birth, passports, social security numbers, and to notarize documents that will be used in the U.S.

In order to obtain an appointment, you must send the required documents for the service you require (passport, report of birth, notarization, or social security) and payment to the Embassy in Stockholm in advance. If the documents have not reached us by May 10, 2019 we will be unable to schedule an appointment for you.

For information about how to book an appointment, and the kind of documentation you need to bring to your appointment, please see our Consular visit to Gothenburg page.


Please note that all routine passport services that require a personal appearance, except for emergencies, will be by appointment only.

What can you bring with you when visiting the U.S. Embassy?

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.
