To visit the Consulate General for a service, you need an appointment.
An appointment can only be made online, through the link provided on each instructions page. Appointments are NOT availabe by phoning or e-mailing the Consulate General.
For any passport appointment pick the option Apply for a U.S. passport for the first time, to get the right type of appointment.
A family coming in for several applications of the same type can make do with just one appointment. If you need a passport service and a notary or report of birth service however, you are requested to make an appointment for each type of service.
Print the appointment confirmation page or at least copy the confirmation number. This will allow you to cancel your appointment and make a new one, should you have to. You will not receive a confirmation e-mail.
Forgot to print the appointment confirmation? No problem. We cannot provide you the confirmation but our guards will have you on their appointment list for the day of your interview. Just tell them you have an appointment and show them your passport. If you are not sure of the exact time, come in early!
After setting up your appointment, download, print and fill out the required application form(s). Follow the instructions on this website, NOT those on the forms.
From the left menu you can pick the service you require.
Appointments are mandatory. Customers with an emergency requiring immediate attention however, e.g. when your passport is lost or stolen may be admitted during our regular working hours without an appointment but will be asked to demonstrate their emergency. Please see our contact information for details.
If you are a visitor in transit
If you are a visitor to The Netherlands in transit and have lost your passport or had it stolen, no appointment is required. You can visit the Consulate during our morning opening hours (8:30 to 11:30 A.M.).
You must bring proof of your travel, e.g. e-ticket or reservation, and your emergency, e.g. police report, with you. Please also see our Imminent Departure page on emergency passports.
