We will be happy to assist you with applying for a replacement passport. Before coming to the Embassy, it is a good idea to report the loss/theft to the nearest police station. Filing a police report will assist you if someone else finds your passport and tries to use your identity.
All full-validity passports are printed in the U.S. and are mailed by courier service back to the Embassy. It typically takes one week for us to receive a passport. In emergency cases, we may be able to issue a limited-validity passport printed here at the Embassy.
Step 1: Assemble all the documents
For the Embassy to replace your passport, we will need to verify your citizenship and identity. If possible, please be prepared to submit a photocopy of your lost/stolen passport, your U.S. birth certificate, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or Naturalization Certificate. We also will need some proof of your identity such as a foreign passport, a national identity card, a driver’s license, a military ID card, school ID card, etc.
For your passport appointment, please prepare the following items (in addition to the documents listed above):
- Complete the passport application form using the electronic passport wizard, print the form, and bring it to the interview. Please do not sign the form until you are at the Embassy, in front of the Consul.
- Complete the Statement Regarding Lost/Stolen Passport (form DS-64) also using the electronic passport wizard. Print the form, and bring it to the interview (rather than submit on-line)
- One passport photo – 2×2 inches (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.
- Police report, if you have one.
- The fee for a passport is US$145. We accept U.S. dollars or euros, payable in cash or via credit card.
- If you would like to have the new passport returned by mail to an address in Slovenia, please bring us an A5-sized padded envelope (podložena kuverta) with €1.67 in Slovene postage stamps affixed to it.
Step 2: Make an Appointment
All passport services are handled by appointment only. Please make an appointment through our online calendar. If a child has lost the passport, please see our page on minor passports for the documentation and personal appearance requirements. Due to security procedures, we are only able to admit visitors who have business with the consular section, their minor children, or a companion to provide necessary physical assistance. We are not able to admit other visitors without prior special arrangement. If there will be someone accompanying the primary applicant, like parents of a minor child or a companion to provide physical assistance, please email us and provide the name of the primary applicant, the names of anyone accompanying the primary applicant, and the date of the appointment.

For your interview, please do not bring large bags/suitcases, nor large electronic devices, such as laptop computers or tablets, as they are not allowed within the Embassy.
