Apply Online for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad

This new process will allow U.S. citizen parents to complete a Consular Report of Birth Abroad application online, upload all required documents, and submit an online payment of $100 prior to the in-person interview. The easy-to-use online process provides applicants with step-by-step instructions on how to complete the application.

To apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad online, you need to create a MyTravelGov account. MyTravelGov is a secure, encrypted portal. Once you complete the online application and submit the payment, you will be directed to schedule your appointment at the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo.

Please plan to schedule your appointment a minimum of 5 working days after the date of submission to allow payment processing to be completed.


  • Passport applications must be completed and submitted separately.  A passport book fee is $115, which must be paid during your in-person interview at the Embassy Tokyo. Links will be provided at the end of the CRBA application.
  • Do NOT make another (or duplicate) payment for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad ($100) at the Embassy.
  • If you prefer to submit a paper-based application, please follow these procedures.
