Emergency passports are only issued in real emergencies and evidence of
the need for immediate, emergency travel should be submitted with
applications. Emergency passports are normally only valid for three
months and cannot be extended. You must appear at the Consulate in person
The application process and fee is the same as if you were applying for a regular passport.
When you receive your emergency passport, you will also receive a letter that explains how to obtain a regular passport after returning from your urgent travel.
If you apply for your regular passport within 1 year of the issue date of the emergency passport, you will not have to pay the fee again.
