The American Citizens Services (ACS) Unit at the U.S. Embassy in Panama will be visiting Boquete, Chiriqui, on Thursday, March 28, 2018, to provide DS-11 passport and notarial services to U.S. Citizens. 

 

Please note that due to logistical constraints, we are not able to provide passport renewal services for adults (Form DS-82) at the event. To renew adult passports, please use the passport by mail service.

 

WHERE,WHEN, AND HOW:

  

Where: Biblioteca de Boquete,Avenida Central, Bajo Boquete, Panama

When: Thursday, June 28th. Notarial services 10am-12pm.  Passport services 12-1pm.

How: Please register below according to the service that you require:

 

For passport renewal for minors and lost/stolen or damaged pssport services, register here (Please note that we will NOT accept routine adult passport renewals during this outreach event.  To renew adult passports, please use the passport by mail service).

For Notarial Services, register here

 

HOW TO PAY FOR PASSPORT AND NOTARIAL SERVICES (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY):

 

The Embassy can only accept payment by local banker’s cashier check (known in Spanish as “Cheque Certificado”) made payable to “U.S. Embassy Panama,” issued within the past five months.  Our office has confirmed with the State Department that, unfortunately, we cannot accept cash or credit card payments.  The notarial fee is $50 per each signature of the Consular Officer.  A list of passport fees can be found here.  Other than passport and notarial services, all other services are no-fee.

 

 

WHAT TO BRING FOR PASSPORT AND NOTARIAL SERVICES:

 

Passports: Please note that we will NOT accept adult passport renewals during this outreach event.  To renew adult passports, please use the passport by mail service

 

 

For passport renewals for minors, in addition to the completed DS-11 application, bring a copy of the photo page of the minor’s passport, a copy of both parents’ passports /cedulas, one recent color photo with a white background that measures 5x5 cm (2X2 inches) and a copy of the minor’s birth certificate, in addition to the original birth certificate and passport/ cedulas.  The fee for passport renewal is currently $115.00 for a minor (under 16) and $145.00 (for a minor 16 years of age and older).  The minor (under 16) and both parents or guardians must appear in person.  If only one parent is present in Panama, the “Statement of Consent from Absent Parent” Form DS-3053, notarized in the United States, is required.  Please note that the DS-3053 will not be accepted if notarized in Panama. 

 

For lost/stolen passports, in addition to the completed DS-11 application and the DS-64 statement regarding a lost or stolen passport, one recent color photo with a white background that measures 5x5 cm (2X2 inches), a Panamanian police report documenting the lost/stolen passport, and documentation of your identity (government-issued identification cards and/or proof of U.S. citizenship).  The fee is currently $145 for an adult (over the age of 16) replacement of a lost or stolen passport. 

 

 

Notarizations: Here is the link with details. If you are requesting the notarization of your driver’s license, bring a photocopy of the front and back page of your license, as well as your license.  If you are requesting notarization of benefits documents, bring the original and a copy of the document(s) showing the amount of benefits you receive monthly or annually.  The notarial fee is $50.00 for each signature of the Consular Officer.

  

 

We look forward to seeing you there!

 

 

Sincerely,
