Passports

We serve U.S. citizens intending international travel through passport issuance, while protecting the integrity of the U.S. passport as proof of U.S. citizenship at home and around the world.

One of the primary functions of the Passport/Citizenship Unit is to provide information and guidance on citizenship questions. For additional information about passports, see this page.

The U.S. Embassy in Tripoli remains closed.  U.S. citizens in Libya who seek emergency assistance or routine consular services should contact the U.S. Embassy in Tunis.

U.S. citizens in Libya who seek to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, U.S. passport, or other routine service should follow the instructions on the U.S. Embassy Tunis website for scheduling an appointment, and review information for documentary requirements for each service, and associated fees.  The U.S. Embassy in Tunis does not accept Libyan dinar for payment of any consular fees.
