In Thailand, U.S. citizens must apply for a passport in person at the Embassy or Consulate.  To make an appointment for a passport service, please visit our ACS apointment page.  Expect to spend about one hour at the Consulate while we process your application.

New passports are produced in the United States.  Please allow 14 days for processing after your appointment.  As soon as the passport arrives, we will notify you by e-mail with instructions for pick-up.  You or your designee must pick it up at the Consulate.  (Note: If you order a passport card, please allow six weeks.)  

When you pick up your new passport, we will cancel your current passport, but we will not touch any visas inside.  If you have a valid foreign visa in your current passport, you should check with that country's Embassy or Consulate to find out if you must transfer the visa to your new passport.  For Thai visas, contact the Thai Immigration Bureau.
