Passport Outreach Day takes place at Hercules Theater

The U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt and the Ramstein Passport Office will host a Passport Outreach Day from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at the Hercules Theater on Ramstein. This event serves as an outreach to provide the military community with expedited service for passport applications prior to the summer transfer and tourist travel seasons.

Consulate representatives will be on site to accept tourist passport applications and consular report of birth abroad (unfortunately, staff will not be able to process no-fee baby passports, only tourist passports).

In addition, consulate representatives from Social Security, the Federal Benefits Unit, U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services and homeland security will be available to answer questions related to immigration, naturalization, visas, citizenship, social security and veterans’ benefits.

The passport office has placed detailed checklists for tourist passports and reports of birth abroad on the Ramstein newcomer website at to ensure smooth processing of applications. 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 will pay $135. Payment is due with the application and must be paid by money order only.

All services will be available on a walk-in basis. First come, first served. In order to process applications quickly, clients are asked to come prepared with all original documents in order and with the required photocopies and money order(s). On-site passport photo support will be available from MOMS at the cost of $7 for six photos on Outreach Day. Money orders can be purchased by military ID cardholders at the Ramstein Northside Post Office (cash or debit card only) or at the client’s servicing on-base banking facility prior to or on Outreach Day (on-site service will not be possible).
