The online application for the Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) will allow parents to fill out an application online, upload required documents (maximum size 2M per document), and submit an online payment of $100 prior to the in-person interview.
Before you begin the online CRBA application, however, please read through the CRBA checklist carefully (and consider printing it out) to help ensure you have all of the required documentation ready to upload (maximum size 2M per document) and ready to take with you on the day of your interview.
Once you have familiarized yourself with or printed out the requirements described above, create a MyTravelGov account using the link below to get started on your CRBA application and make your online payment. MyTravelGov is a secure, encrypted portal. Once you complete the online application and submit your payment, you will be directed to schedule your appointment at the U.S. Embassy or the nearest consulate to you in Japan.
