Where to Apply

The U.S. Embassy and Consulates General in Brazil have resumed limited appointments for some routine passport, citizenship, and notarial services as local conditions allow.  In accordance with COVID-19 health precautions, appointments for passport, citizenship, and notarial services remain limited. Emergency and time sensitive services continue to have priority, and we may not be able to attend to all routine requests at this time.  Each applicant requires their own appointment. To request an appointment, please contact your nearest embassy, consulate, or agency and detail the nature of your appointment request.

All visitors to our offices age two and older must wear a mask.  Any applicant with symptoms such as a cough, sore throat, or fever must reschedule their interview.

The American Citizen Services (ACS) Sections in Brazil operate by online appointment only for all customers needing non-emergency services, including passports, reports of birth, and notary services. Scheduling appointments allows us to provide better, more efficient service to the public.

Services requiring on-line appointments:

  • U.S. Passport Services (for new passports or renewals)
  • U.S. Citizenship & Report of Birth Abroad – CRBA (for reporting the birth abroad of child of a U.s. citizen and/or applying for the child’s first passport)

  • Immigrant visa services, application for transportation letters, visas for returning residents, vary from post to post. For more information please visit: https://br.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/ or send an e-mail to immigrationrio@state.gov


  • The on-line scheduling system only allows appointment for one service.  If you need multiple services, check only one box for the first service to make the appointment for all services. Important: if one person schedule twice for the same service the second appointment will be deleted from our system without any notification.
  • Please submit copies of all original documents, along with the originals that are appropriate for your case (for example: Brazilian passport, birth certificate, U.S. passport, Brazilian drivers’ license, certificate of naturalization, school records, etc).
  • Please arrive in the section 15 minutes prior to your appointment time, and go directly to the ACS Section – do not stand in the visa application line.
  • If you need to cancel your appointment, you can do so directly via the same appointment link.  No-shows may be asked to wait one week before scheduling again.
