Currently, nearly all U.S. passport applicants in Romania — including adults renewing their passports through the “mail-in” form DS-82 — must arrange for in-person payment of their passport renewal fee at the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest. We understand that this situation is inconvenient for U.S. citizens residing outside Bucharest and have been working on a solution.
The Department of State is pleased to announce that U.S. Embassy Bucharest has been selected to provide for payment of DS-82 passport renewal fees online. The program is expected to begin in November.
We will send another announcement when this online payment system has launched, along with specific instructions to help you confirm your eligibility to use this online payment option. Thank you.
