The Consular Section can issue passports to American citizens applying for the first time, renewing an expired passport, or applying for a replacement for a lost or stolen passport.

Full instructions regarding application forms, supporting documents, photos, and fees are provided at the Travel.State.Gov website: Applying for a U.S. Passport from outside the United States

Passport applications are normally processed within ten working days.  In case of an emergency, however, a limited validity passport can often be issued on the same day the application is approved.

Payment: Cash only in either US dollars or Mauritian Rupees or by Credit Card.

All non-emergency consular services for U.S. Citizens are provided by appointment only. U.S. citizens should contact the Consular Section at (230) 202 4432 or via e-mail for an appointment prior to visiting the Embassy to ensure the availability of consular staff.
