By law, the CRBA application must be made before the child’s 18th birthday. For citizenship applications after the child’s 18th birthday go here.
A CRBA is the only citizenship document that includes the relationship between the child and the parent(s).
A CRBA, like a U.S. Birth Certificate cannot be used for international travel. We recommend that you apply for your child’s U.S. passport and social security number at the same time as you apply for the CRBA. All three applications may be submitted together at your scheduled appointment.
Once your child has a CRBA (and therefore has U.S. citizenship), even if your child holds another nationality, he or she must enter and exit the United States on a U.S. passport. Your child may not enter/travel to the U.S. using the ESTA program or using any foreign passport.
**Please note, the child must be physically present at the interview in order to approve issuance of a Consular Report of Birth Abroad**
Upload Supporting Documents:
In order to receive a confirmed appointment, you must upload and submit all of the required items* below (and non-required items if applicable) – either a scan or a photo is acceptable for each item. If your application is incomplete, you will not be able to make an appointment.
In order to process your appointment request, you must upload the entire document(s) you would like notarized.
The fee is $50 USD (€45) per notary seal. For example, you will be charged $150 for a single document that requires the Consular Officer to sign and acknowledge your signature in three places.
After uploading and submitting your document(s), you will receive an email with your appointment time and the total fee required. Please note, the only acceptable form of payment is a French cheque de banque (this is NOT a simple bank check, it typically can only be obtained in person at a French bank) which must be made payable to: U.S. Embassy.
