Replacing a Limited-Validity (Emergency) Passport
4 MINUTE READ

If you were previously issued an emergency, limited-validity passport at an Embassy or Consulate because you had urgent need to travel, you should apply to renew this passport for a full-validity passport as soon as possible.  Please note that two consecutive emergency passports generally cannot be issued.  Your next application should be a full-validity passport, which will be printed in the United States and take approximately two weeks to process.  

If less than one year has passed since your limited-validity passport was issued:

  • Complete and print Form DS-5504 (follow link for “Replacing a Damaged or Limited Validity Passport”).
  • Provide One passport photo – 2”×2” (5×5 cm) against a white background and without glasses.  There are several photo studios close to the Embassy that are familiar with our passport photo requirements.
  • You will not have to pay any passport fees if you can show the receipt of payment for the limited-validity passport.
  • An A5 padded envelope (podložena kuverta) with €2.66 in Slovene postage stamps (two “c” class stamps).  We will mail back your passport via registered mail to your home in Slovenia or a Slovenian post office.
  • Please make an appointment through our online calendar

If more than one year has passed since your passport was issued:

  • Follow the procedures for passport renewal.
  • In addition, if the endorsement on the last page of your emergency passport states that your passport was issued under 22 CFR 51.41, you must also submit additional proof of citizenship. If the endorsement on the last page of your emergency passport states that your passport was issued under 22 CFR 51.28, you must also submit additional proof of identity.
