Launch of DS-82 Passport Renewal Online Fee Payment Program

Message for U.S. Citizens

The Department of State is pleased to announce that U.S. Embassy San Jose will begin supporting online payment for DS-82 passport renewal fees.  Qualified applicants will no longer need to make an interview appointment at the U.S. Embassy.  Beginning March 21, 2022, passport applicants wishing to pay for their DS-82 renewal application online may visit to determine eligibility to use this option.  If eligible, applicants may then submit payment via U.S. or international credit or debit card, electronic funds transfer from a U.S.-based bank account, Amazon Pay, or Pay Pal.  For questions about this online fee payment option please contact the American Citizen Services unit at

Best regards,
