U.S. Citizen Services
The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our passport/visa system. This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or visa at this time. We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.
For the information on new Ukrainian visa rules for long-term travelers planning to stay in Ukraine for more than 90 days, please read our general overview.
Routine notarial and passport services are scheduled through an online appointment system. Customers who arrive after their scheduled appointment time may be turned away. Before you schedule an appointment, please read the information on our website about the service that you need and complete any necessary application forms.
Please email the American Citizen Services Unit if you need a service that is not included in our online system – including questions about Social Security or other federal benefits – or if you have several people that need service at the same time.
Please note that the American Citizen Services unit will not be able to answer visa-related inquiries. All questions related to visas (immigrant and non-immigrant) are answered by our Call Center.
NOTE: Fees for consular services can be paid either in U.S. dollars or Ukrainian hryvnyas. There is an ATM machine located in our waiting room which can be used to withdraw hryvnyas. We accept major credit cards for passports, birth registrations, and notarials (visa fees must be paid in cash). A complete list of fees can be accessed at the U.S. Department of State website on Passport Fees page and Fees for Visa Services page.
