The U.S. Embassy in La Paz has temporarily suspended all routine U.S. citizen services, we hope to resume services as soon as possible.
If you require a new passport, a renewal passport, or just aren’t sure, our simple Passport Wizard will assist you in determining your eligibility and gathering the documentation needed to apply.
There is no walk-in service for United States citizens who require a service related to passports, citizenship, or birth registration. These services are by appointment only.
Passport services are not available on weekends, or on Bolivian or U.S. Holidays.
The processing time for routine passport renewals is 3-4 weeks. If you are traveling within the next 2 weeks, please see Emergency Passports for further information.
