U.S. Citizen Services

The U.S. Embassy in Praia offers all American Citizen Services including passports, Consular Reports of Birth Abroad (CRBAs), Consular Reports of Death Abroad (CRDAs), and notarial services. To request an appointment, please use the Embassy’s on-line appointment system.

Appointments are mandatory for all services. Please also note that requests for a same-day hearing cannot be granted. If you need emergency services, please email PraiaConsular@state.gov.

Fees for consular services are payable in Cabo Verdean escudos or U.S. dollars. Exact cash is appreciated. We cannot process payments by credit card, check, or money order.
