Jerusalem Dropbox - Adult Emergency

Updated: Feb 14

The Jerusalem drop box is located at the main consular entrance of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem at 14 David Flusser Street in Arnona,

The drop box is available from Monday to Thursday between 8:00am and 12:30 pm, except on local and federal holidays.  No appointment is necessary.  

Emergency passports are intended for U.S. citizens who need to travel immediately to the United States due to an unexpected incident or for U.S. citizen tourists whose passports were lost or stolen during their travels.

Please be aware that emergency passports are limited-validity. The US Embassy strongly encourages you to exchange your limited-validity emergency passport for a new, full-validity passport as soon as possible. If you do so within one year of the issuance of the emergency passport, you will not be charged another passport application fee.

Emergency renewals can be placed in the dropbox, for anyone who is eligible to renew by dropbox. Please write “emergency” on the envelope. Emergency renewals via dropbox are available for pickup within several days.
