Message to U.S. Citizens: Coming Soon – Online Fee Payment for Adult Passport Renewals
February 23, 2022

Location:  Spain and Andorra

ANNOUNCEMENT:  The Department of State is pleased to announce that U.S. citizens residing in Spain and Andorra will soon be able to pay their DS-82 adult passport renewal fees online via the U.S. government’s secure payment site, if they meet the requirements to mail in their passport renewal application.  The online payment system is expected to be available for Spain and Andorra on February 27, 2022.  Please see our Adult Passport Renewals webpage to determine if you are eligible to mail in your passport renewal application.

Currently, U.S. citizens in Spain and Andorra who are eligible to renew their U.S. passports by mail must enclose a cashier’s check issued within the last 15 days from a bank in Spain with their completed passport renewal application (form DS-82) and support documents when they mail the application to U.S. Embassy Madrid or U.S. Consulate General Barcelona.  We understand that obtaining a cashier’s check is difficult for U.S. citizens and are happy to be able to offer this new alternative.

We will send out another announcement when this online payment system has launched, along with specific instructions to help you confirm your eligibility to use the online payment option.
