Request an Emergency Passport

You may qualify for an emergency passport service if you have urgent travel plans or another immediate need for a U.S. passport.  In general, the Consular Section needs one business day to produce an emergency passport.  The application requirements and fees for an emergency passport service are the same as for regularly scheduled passport services.  If you schedule an emergency passport service, please review those requirements before your appointment to ensure you have all required supporting documents.

To request an emergency passport service please email the following information to

  1. The reason you need an emergency passport appointment
  2. A scan of the biographic information page of your most recent U.S. passport, if available and
  3. Your confirmed itinerary for international travel if the reason you need an emergency appointment is urgent travel plans.

If you need more immediate assistance please contact the American Citizen Services unit by phone Sunday-Thursday between 2:00 PM and 3:00 PM at (+962-6) 590-6950, or contact the Embassy at (+962-6) 590-6000.

Emergency passports are valid for one year and may be replaced with a full validity passport for no extra fees by submitting a DS-5504 application within one year to any American Citizen Services unit at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate overseas or to any passport acceptance facility in the United States.  If your emergency passport expires before you submit your application for replacement with a full validity passport, then you will be required to pay the passport fees for that application.
