The U.S. Consulate General in Barcelona provides services to U.S. Citizens needing a new passport, a renewal of a current passport, pages added to an existing passport, names changes in a passport, or a replacement of a lost or stolen passport. Routine (non-emergency) passport services will require an appointment.
Except in emergencies, U.S. passports are produced at facilities in the United States. Emergency passports are produced onsite at the Consulate and can be processed generally within a few hours. Emergency passport services do not require an appointment. However, emergency passports will only be processed for citizens that must travel within 10 business days and can present evidence of this need to travel (plane or train tickets, etc).
If you are in the Balearic Islands, you need to contact the U.S. Consular Agent in Palma de Mallorca for an appointment. Please call them at 971 403 707 and leave a message or send them an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Passport processing time and the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative
With the implementation earlier this year of the first phase of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, more U.S. citizens than ever before need to apply for a passport. Due to the heavy demand for U.S. passports please allow for 10 days for processing.
