Ramstein to hold Passport Outreach Day Wednesday

The U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt and the Ramstein Passport Office will host a Passport Outreach Day from 9:30 a.m. to 13:30 p.m. Wednesday in Bldg. 2402 on Ramstein. This event serves as an outreach to provide the KMC 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 and consular report of birth abroad applications.

In addition, representatives from Social Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Immigrant Visa Services, and Homeland Security will be available to answer questions related to immigration, naturalization, visas and social security.

The Passport Office has placed detailed checklists for tourist passports and reports of birth abroad on the Ramstein website at www.ramstein.af.mil/library/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=17152 to help you fill out your 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 must pay $135. Payment is due with the application and must be paid by money order or cashier check only.

All services will be available on a walk-in basis, first come, first serve. In order to process applications quickly, we ask clients to come prepared with all original documents in order and money order(s).  On-site passport photo support will be available from MOMS at the cost of $8 for six photos on Outreach Day. Money orders can be purchased by military ID card holders at the Ramstein Northside Post Office (cash or debit card only) or at your servicing on-base banking facility prior to or on Outreach Day (on-site service is not possible).

The Ramstein Passport Office will be closed for regular service Wednesday and will reopen at 9 a.m. Thursday.
