How to renew offical passport while deployed in Iraq
(US Army Europe)
Question: I have an official passport (red) that will expire in Aug 2010. I am currently deployed to Iraq with the US Army. What form do I have to fill out to renew this passport? I know DS-82 is for renewal of the regular passports but is this for the official ones also?
The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad
partnered with the Department of Defense to set up a military passport agent program in Iraq. This program will allow US soldiers to apply for their US passports at three regional bases:
o Al Asad airbase in Anbar province
o Joint Base in Balad
o COB Adder in Tallil
With a military passport agent in place at three regional bases, service members in these areas no longer have to travel to the International Zone in order to obtain their U.S. passports. Service members can apply for their passports at the Staff Judge Advocate's offices at Al Asad, Balad and Tallil. This will shorten their time out of action and will make it more convenient for service members to obtain passports for mid-tour R&R.
Service members may contact the Consular Section of the US Embassy for more information at: email@example.comApplying at the US Embassy
US soldiers can also apply at the Consular Section of the US Embassy in Baghdad located in the International Zone, at the New Embassy Compound on Al Kindi Street, (across from FOB Union III.)
