All routine services are provided on an appointment basis. Passport and notarial appointments must be scheduled through our web site and cannot be scheduled by calling or emailing the American Citizen Services Unit.
Check your local embassy’s website on how to make an appointment, or in some cases, drop off your passport application. Walk-in services may not be available. Passport services are not available on weekends or on Denmark or U.S. holidays.
Processing times vary depending on demand. If you are traveling within the next two weeks, please see the Emergency Passports section.
If you already know the form you need to apply, visit the Find the Form You Need section to learn more about completing and submitting the form. If you are unsure which form is needed in your situation, the Passport Wizard can guide you to the correct form.
Current regulations reflect the long standing policy of the Department of State that no person should be in possession of more than one valid, or potentially valid, passport at any one time unless under circumstances specifically authorized by the Secretary of State.
Passport Applications for Minors must be signed in front of a Consular Officer at the Embassy. To visit the Embassy, one must make an appointment. The American Citizen Services Unit requests that you schedule one appointment for each person that needs a service. If this is not possible, please contact the American Citizens Services Unit by e-mail. The e-mail address is CopenhagenACS@state.gov.
The renewal-by-mail program is open and operational. The passport printing facilities in the U.S. have resumed operations and passports are processing without delays. We strongly recommend you use the renewal-by-mail option if you are eligible.
