by The Thi Nguyen
Question: Hi! Sir/Madam:
My name The Nguyen, 80 years old. I retired and had been living in Vietnam for about 3 years. My current US Passport will expire soon. Can I renew my US Passport at the US embassy in Vietnam or do I have to go back to the US to renew it? I am sick and need the treatment in Vietnam. Please let me know ASAP. Thank you.
American citizens can renew passports while abroad at the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate, even in Vietnam
Applicants for U.S. passports should apply in person from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday, except holidays at the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi.
Applicants must bring one 2 inch x 2 inch (5 cm x 5 cm) photos on a white background (Polaroids are not acceptable) and evidence of U.S. citizenship, such as a previous passport or a Naturalization Certificate.
The adult passport renewal fee is US $110.00 for a ten-year adult passport and is payable in U.S. dollars or Vietnamese Dong in cash, or by the following credit cards: Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express. The Embassy does not accept checks.
The embassy forwards passport applications to the National Passport Information Center
in the U.S. The National Passport Center will print the passport and send it back to the embassy. This process will take approximately two weeks, so you are strongly encouraged to apply for a passport well before any planned travel.
