U.S. Citizen Services

Welcome to the U.S. Citizen Services at the United States Embassy Bucharest. We provide information and assistance to U.S. citizens in Romania. The U.S. Citizen Services unit is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and official Romanian and U.S. holidays.

Passport, citizenship, or notary services are provided by appointment only.  Due to the impact of COVID-19 and associated restrictions, at this time we are only scheduling a very limited number of in-person appointments, primarily for passport and citizenship services. For appointment information, consult the page for the service you are requesting.  Please note that lost, stolen, or expired passports can only be replaced during normal business hours, and do not constitute after-hours emergencies. Refer to this page for further information about U.S. passports: https://ro.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/passports/.

Before contacting us, please review the information on our website as the answer may readily be available. If you have specific questions regarding passport services, notarial services, or other services for U.S. citizens, that have not been answered by the information on our website, please send us an email at ACSBucharest@state.gov. We will answer your email promptly. We cannot respond to inquiries related to U.S. visas or permanent resident cards. To inquire about visas or green cards, please visit this page for contact information: https://ro.usembassy.gov/visas/.
