Message for U.S. Citizens: Launch of Passport Renewal Online Fee Payment Program

Dear US Citizen:

U.S. Embassy Port Louis is pleased to announce the launch of an online payment program for adult passport renewals for U.S. citizens resident in Mauritius, Seychelles, and Reunion.  Qualified applicants will no longer need to make an interview appointment at the U.S. Embassy to pay the passport fee.  Effective September 15, 2023, adult U.S. passport holders who are eligible to renew their passports using the DS-82 application, may pay online.  Visit to determine eligibility to use this option.  The secure payment site will be linked under the heading “Renew a 10-year Adult Passport by Mail.”  If eligible, you may then submit payment via U.S. or international credit or debit card, electronic funds transfer from a U.S.-based bank account, Amazon Pay, or Pay Pal.  For questions about this online fee payment option please contact the American Citizen Services unit at ACS
