Message for U.S. Citizens: Launch of Passport Renewal Online Fee Payment Program

The Department of State/U.S. Mission to Bulgaria is pleased to announce the launch of an online payment program for adult passport renewal for U.S. citizens resident in Bulgaria. Qualified applicants will no longer need to make an interview appointment at the U.S. Embassy. Effective June 5, 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.
