New for Passport Applicants: U.S. citizens over the age of 16 who will renew their passports with the DS-82 application form are now eligible to do so via mail and pay their application fee online.  Please see HERE for instructions.  Those applying for first-time passports, minor child passports, and passport cards must still make an appointment with the nearest consular section.

Quiet Afternoons for Beijing ACS Customers Only:  Promoting a more accessible community for American Citizen Services

Starting July 14, 2023, U.S. Embassy Beijing will offer Quiet Afternoons twice a month for ACS customers with special needs as part of our improved and inclusive customer service experience.  This aims to help individuals and families who may benefit from or prefer a quieter customer experience by minimizing distractions and offering personalized services to applicants with sensory processing difficulties.  Accommodations include reduced noise, dimmed lighting, and shorter wait times.  Quiet Afternoons are for customers of all ages.

We hope that these simple but thoughtful changes provide a more comfortable and efficient experience for our customers with special needs.

Quiet Afternoons are the second and fourth Friday of every month.

Community members with special needs, their parent(s), guardian(s), or caregiver, can contact BeijingACS@state.gov to schedule an appointment.




The U.S. Embassy in China is offering emergency appointments only for passport and citizenship services that require an in-person appearance. Please be aware that emergency appointment availability is extremely limited.
