Tel Aviv Dropbox - Adult Emergency

Updated: Jul 12

The Tel Aviv dropbox is located at the main consular entrance at 71 HaYarkon St in Tel Aviv. 

Applicants may drop off their passport application (Forms DS-82 and DS-5504 only).

Social Security applications can only be dropped off at the drop box in Jerusalem. 

The drop box is available from Monday to Thursday between 8:00am and 2:45pm and Friday between 8:00am and 12:00pm, 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.
