What should I do when one parent can't come to an embassy appointment?




If one parent can't come to the embassy for a CRBA or any minor passport renewal, here is what to do:


1. Find a notary in your area.


2. Print out this form: DS3053


3. Schedule with the notary and the parent that can't attend.


4. Parent will sign form in front of notary. Bring photo ID 🪪.


5 Make sure to bring the other spouse 's photo id and copy to the embassy.


The same one that he/she showed at the notary appointment.


*You need one form per child.*



Source and more details here:


*Please read it thoroughly. They don't take this process lightly.*



Please note:


In America, a Notary can legally practice ONLY in the jurisdiction of his charter. And no part of Israel is that. Three options:

1. Online-video if the entity agrees.

2. Consular authentication at US Embassy.

3. Israeli notarization with or without apostile.
