Adult U.S. citizens renewing their passports through form DS-82 may be eligible to pay for their passport renewal fee online. To determine your eligibility to make an online payment for your passport renewal fee, click here.
Important Message: Please note that the embassy has a foreign payment system and therefore, if you wish to pay with a non-U.S. card, you should enable the international payments option before attending your appointment.
Delivery of passports:
At the time of your appointment, kindly provide a small (C5 size) self-addressed unpadded envelope with NOK 210 in stamps (per application) so your passport can be sent back via registered mail.
IMPORTANT: Please provide regular stamps for your return envelope for passport or Consular Report of Birth Abroad. We are not able to return envelopes with the handwritten code from Posten Norge.
The U.S. Embassy is offering limited consular services at this time, open only for emergency appointments on a case-by-case basis. If your travel is urgent, please contact the American Citizen Services Section at OsloACS@state.gov to request an emergency appointment. We have opened a limited number of appointments for self-scheduling for winter 2022 to accommodate U.S. citizens who may need passport or other services when no immediate travel is required.
IMPORTANT: If you are eligible to renew your passport by mail, please utilize this option to avoid visiting the embassy. We will not grant in-person appointments to applicants who are eligible to renew by mail and have the time to do so.
Passport Renewal by Mail: If you are renewing an adult 10-year passport (DS-82 application) you do not need to come into the Embassy for an appointment. With Pay.Gov, you may pay for your passport renewal online, and can expect to receive your new passport within four weeks. Check requirements for renewal by mail further below under Passport Services/Renewal by Mail. Not only is renewing your passport by mail easier for you, it avoids COVID risks for everyone!

If you are unable to attend a scheduled appointment, please let us know at OsloACS@state.gov as soon as possible. We will open new appointments as often as we can and reopen canceled appointments daily. Please continue to check our website for availability. Please only book one appointment per person. If you book more than one appointment, we will select one and cancel all others.
