NOTICE: The U.S. Embassy in Tokyo has limited availability for routine appointments for Consular Reports of Birth, passports, and notarial services. If you need an urgent appointment for international travel, documentation of citizenship and identify for a child, or for purposes related to Japanese immigration or a critical notary service, please email TokyoPPT@state.gov. For applicants who used the electronic application for the Consular Report of Birth, please allow 5 working days between payment submission and interview appointment time. Please note that mail-in renewal is available for most adult passports (see more information).

To apply for a social security card, please DO NOT make an appointment here. Please make an appointment from this link. It is no longer possible to apply for a social security card at the same time as a Consular Report of Birth Abroad.
