Passport Services

We accept passport applications – both for first time passports and renewals – in person at the U.S. Embassy in Ashgabat. Processing time averages two weeks but may be slightly higher in some cases, so we urge everyone to renew passports several months before the expiration date.

The U.S. Embassy in Ashgabat can issue emergency passports within 24 hours. However, these emergency passports are limited in validity and cannot be extended. These limited passports have to be exchanged for full-validity passports at the completion of the emergency travel.
