All U.S. Citizens traveling by air from outside of the United States are required to present a passport to enter or re-enter the United States. Haitian law requires U.S. citizens to have a passport to enter and exit Haiti.
American citizens residing or traveling abroad who require issuance of a U.S. passport are issued the latest state-of-the-art passport incorporating a photo-digitized image and other enhanced security features. These passports are produced at a domestic U.S. passport facility. This increases processing times, but the Department is committed to ensuring that American citizens receive secure documents in a timely manner. American citizens are encouraged to apply early for renewal of expiring passports. It generally takes three weeks to obtain a passport.
U.S. Embassies and Consulates will continue to issue passports in emergency cases. However, emergency passports will be limited in validity and cannot be extended. Bearers will be required to exchange their limited validity passports for full-validity photo-digitized passports upon completion of their emergency travel, either through a passport facility in the U.S. or a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad.
