Event:  COVID 19 Update – Status of Services at the U.S. Consulate

The flight we mentioned in our last message, which is going from Bermuda to New Jersey on Friday, June 12 is now full. If we become aware of any future flights, we will send out additional messaging.

We know that many of you are eager for us to resume services, and so are we! We are hoping to restart limited U.S. citizen services as soon as it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, if you require routine citizen services, you are welcome to get started now on the required documentation, so you have it ready.

Adult passport renewals:

If you are in possession of your passport, and it is still valid or it has expired in the past 15 years, complete the application form here. Please note that the address in block 8 must be a local Bermuda address (nothing will be mailed there, however). Complete the form online, and then print it. Do not print the form double sided. You must also provide one photo. Photo standards are listed here.

Passports for children under age 16:

Complete the form DS-11. Complete the form online and then print it. Do not sign the form, and do not print the form double sided. Please note that the address in block 8 must be a local Bermuda address (nothing will be mailed there, however).

Provide one passport photo for the child. Photo standards are listed here.
Obtain the child’s birth certificate. Both parents who are listed on the birth certificate, along with the child, are required to come to the appointment at the consulate to renew the passport. Parents must bring identification such as a driver’s license.

Tax Returns and Stimulus Checks: If your U.S. tax return or stimulus check was sent to you by mail to a Bermuda address, it may have been returned to sender as mail originating from the United States is not currently being delivered to Bermuda.  Contact the IRS directly for more information.
