Welcome to the Passport & Citizenship Unit of the U.S. Embassy Sarajevo. We provide services for United States Citizens in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Unit is closed to the public on U.S. and BiH public holidays.
Please note: 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.
For each passport application, you are required to bring clear photocopies of all the documents you will be submitting with the application (applicant’s passport, parents’ passports or IDs, birth and marriage certificates, etc.)
If you are traveling within the next 2 business days, please see requirements for an Emergency Passport.
If you need reasonable accommodation for your appointment, we encourage you to request your accommodation immediately once you schedule your appointment. We make every effort to provide accommodations to persons with disabilities and medical conditions. Reasonable accommodations vary, depending on the situation and the person’s needs.
Examples of accommodations include, but are not limited to:
If you are unable to provide fingerprints because of a medical condition, including birth defects, physical deformities, skin conditions, you may qualify for a fingerprint waiver for certain fingers.
The waiting room of the Consular Section and its restroom is wheelchair-accessible.
