An appointment is mandatory for all non-emergency citizen services (passports, reports of birth abroad, notary services, etc.), except Federal Benefits.

If you have misplaced your confirmation page, please visit the U.S. Citizen Services Navigator for more information or email contact.

You must bring these checklists with you to your appointment if you are applying for a U.S. Passport (PDF 320 KB) or a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (PDF 316 KB).

Federal Benefits Beneficiaries

Federal Benefits beneficiaries (e.g. Social Security) may come in on Mondays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. without an appointment, except on Uruguayan and U.S. public holidays.


We do not apostille documents. For instructions on how to authenticate/apostille a U.S. public document for use in Uruguay, please see the website of the U.S. entity that issued the document. A list of these entities can be found here.

You can also visit the Authentications and Apostilles page on the Department of State Website.

For instructions on how to authenticate/apostille a Uruguayan public document for use in the United States, please contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (2902-1010) – Section: “Centro de Atención Ciudadana”.
