The U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt and the KMC passport offices are scheduled to host a fall Passport Outreach Day from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 5 in Bldg. 2402 on Ramstein.

This event will serve as an outreach to provide the KMC with expedited service for passport applications prior to the holiday travel season. Consulate representatives will be on-site to accept tourist passport and consular report of birth-abroad applications.

In addition, representatives from Social Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and Immigrant Visa Services will be available to answer questions related to immigration, naturalization, visas, citizenship and Social Security. The local USO will also be there to support the event by serving refreshments.

The Ramstein and Kleber Kaserne passport offices have detailed checklists for tourist passports and reports of births abroad on their websites to aid in filling out applications prior to the event.

For access to these documents, visit (Air Force personnel) or (Army personnel).

The fee for a report of birth and tourist passport for a child is $205. A tourist passport renewal for an adult is $110, and a tourist passport renewal for a minor under 16 is $105. Anyone over the age of 16 applying for the first time must pay $135. Payment is due with the application and must be paid by money order or cashier check only (one for each application).

All services will be available on a walk-in basis, with the exception of birth registrations. Contact the servicing passport office to have documents reviewed and to schedule an appointment for birth registration of your newborn.

To process applications quickly, passport officials ask that clients come prepared with all original documents in order, copies of the documents and money order(s) or cashier check(s). On-site passport photo support will be available at the cost of $8 for six photos. However, passport officials recommend obtaining photos prior to the event to minimize waiting time.

Money orders to cover passport fees can be purchased by military ID cardholders at the Ramstein Northside Post Office (cash or debit card only) or at servicing banking facilities prior to or on outreach day (on-site service not available). Be advised that tourist passports will be taken for cancellation and returned with the newly issued passport.

The Ramstein and Kleber Kaserne passport offices will be closed Nov. 5 and will reopen for regular service Nov. 6.

For questions, further instructions or to schedule a birth registration appointment, send an email to (Air Force personnel) or (Army personnel), or stop by your respective passport office.
