Passport Services Alert – U. S. Embassy Prague, Czech Republic

Location:  Czech Republic

Event:  Current Status of Passport Applications for Americans Overseas

Because of public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, effective March 20, 2020, the U.S Department of State began limiting its passport operations.  Effective April 2, we have further limited our ability to offer routine passport and citizenship services overseas. 

In an emergency, U.S. Embassy Prague can assist with an emergency passport for an adult or a minor.  If you have not received your Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA), an emergency passport may be issued by Embassy Prague 

For emergency passport services for U.S. citizens abroad, please contact Embassy Prague at  

If you have previously applied for a passport or citizenship service, you should expect significant delays receiving your passport and your citizenship evidence documents. Contact Embassy Prague to check on the status of your passport or citizenship document such as a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA).  Please consider waiting to apply until we resume normal operations.

We encourage you to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive the latest updates in the Czech Republic, as well as the days and hours of American Citizen Services and possible future evacuation plans.

For all other American Citizen Services in the Czech Republic, please contact Embassy Prague at
