Emergency United States passports are issued to those applicants who have immediate travel and cannot wait to receive a regular full-validity passport before traveling.
To apply for an emergency passport, you must apply in person at the United States Consulate General in Curacao with the following:
- The appropriate completed application(s) and form(s), not yet signed. Note that you must list a local address as the mailing address even if you are here only temporarily (such as a hotel).
- Form DS-64, filled out but not yet signed if you are replacing a lost or stolen United States passport and have not already reported it online.
- One U.S. passport-sized photo (2 in x 2 in) [note: be very clear when having photos taken that you need U.S. passport-sized photos as Dutch passport-sized photos are incorrect].
- Proof of identity (a government issued photo ID). If you have been issued a United States passport previously, the consular officer may be able to find this record electronically.
- Proof of U.S. citizenship (an original U.S. long form birth certificate or previous U.S. passport). If you have been issued a United States passport previously, the consular officer may be able to find this record electronically.
- Cash or credit card to pay the appropriate fees.
You can make an appointment to apply for an emergency United States passport. If you cannot obtain an appointment before your date of travel you can contact our office to request an emergency appointment or come directly to the Consulate before 2:00 pm on days we are open. Be advised that arriving at the Consulate without a scheduled appointment or calling ahead may result in significant delays before you are allowed to enter the building.
