The American Citizen Services (ACS) Unit accepts passport applications by appointment to renew expiring or expired passports, or replace passports that have been lost, stolen, or mutilated. ACS also accepts applications for Consular Reports of Birth Abroad and first U.S. passports for U.S. citizen children born outside of the United States. Each U.S. citizen in Ukraine, including children and infants, must have his or her own valid passport. A lost or stolen passport must be replaced immediately.
U.S. Embassies and Consulates overseas no longer issue full validity passports. Overseas posts accept passport applications and electronically forward them to the National Passport Center in the United States. The full validity passport is then sent back to the Embassy or Consulate to be issued to the applicant. The turnaround time for this process is usually seven business days.
To have your new passport sent to you by FedEx, please inform the consular employee at the U.S. Embassy when submitting your application. You will need to complete a delivery form. Please note that the passport can only be sent to an address in Ukraine.
In cases where the applicant must travel urgently or has an immediate need for a passport, the Embassy can issue an emergency passport that is typically valid for three months. The emergency passport can be exchanged later for a full validity passport at an Embassy or Consulate overseas or at a Passport Agency in the United States. For further information on passport services, please see the Department of State’s website on U.S. passports.

Please note: Applications for Consular Reports of Birth Abroad and U.S. passports for children born in Crimea, as well as in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, must be accompanied by the appropriate Ukrainian civil documents. As discussed in “General Documents” in the reciprocity schedule for Ukraine, we do not accept or recognize the validity of Russian civil documents issued in Crimea or documents issued by the so-called “Donetsk People’s Republic” and “Luhansk People’s Republic.” For additional information regarding procedures for obtaining civil documents related to life events that occurred in Crimea and Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, please contact U.S. Embassy Kyiv’s American Citizen Services Unit at KyivACS@state.gov.
