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 six working days.  In case of an emergency, however, a limited validity passport can often be issued on the same day the application is approved.

Fees are payable in cash only, in Mauritian rupees (MUR) and US dollars.  We do not accept checks or credit cards for payment.

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.

Consular Hours:

Monday to Thursday:  7:30 to 16:45
Friday: 7:30  to 12:30
