Other Information

Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA)

After your interview and approval notification, the estimated processing time for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) and first passport is approximately 10 working days for applicants born in Serbia.

If your child was born in a different country, the application will be sent to to the U.S. Embassy or U.S. consulate covering that location.  Processing time could be several months.

Note: There is no expedited service for a CRBA, but in case of emergency or urgent travel, we may be able to issue an emergency passport.

Security Information

In response to COVID-19, and to ensure the safety and security of our customers and staff, the following points will strictly apply to anyone with a confirmed ACS appointment:

  • Arrive for your appointment 15 minutes early, to allow time for security screening. If you arrive late, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment for another day.
  • Wear a mask. In response to COVID-19 all customers over the age of 2 must wear masks while at the Embassy. You are required to bring your own mask(s). If you do not have a mask, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment for another day.
  • Come fully prepared for your interview. We must limit the number of customers in our waiting room due to social distancing requirements, so customers will not be allowed to fill out forms in our waiting room, as that would delay serving other customers. Therefore, if you are not fully prepared you will be asked to reschedule your appointment for another day.
  • Plan to use public transportation or have someone drop you off, there is no parking for visitors at the Embassy.


All visitors must be screened prior to entering the U.S. Embassy, Belgrade and are subject to inspection via walk-through metal detector and/or a hand-held metal detector. All personal items will undergo full inspection by use of x-ray and other detection equipment. Any visitor who declines to be screened by U.S. Embassy security personnel will be prohibited from entering the Embassy grounds.

If you need reasonable accommodation for your appointment, we encourage you to request your accommodation immediately once you schedule your appointment. We make every effort to provide accommodations to persons with disabilities and medical conditions. Reasonable accommodations vary, depending on the situation and the person’s needs.
Examples of accommodations include, but are not limited to:

    • If you require a private appointment due to a medical condition or disability, we may schedule an alternative time for you to come in for your interview.
    • If you or your child has special needs that requires a private appointment in a quiet space without distractions, we may schedule an alternative time for you or your family to come in for your interview.
    • If you are unable to speak, you may be allowed to respond to questions in an agreed-upon nonverbal manner such as using pen and paper.
    • If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you may bring a sign language interpreter to translate during the interview if needed.
    • If you have low vision, we may provide you with communications in large print.

If you are unable to provide fingerprints because of a medical condition, including birth defects, physical deformities, skin conditions, you may qualify for a fingerprint waiver for certain fingers.
