 U.S. Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA)

A child born abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents may acquire U.S. citizenship at birth if certain statutory requirements are met. For information on these requirements click here.

By law, the CRBA application must be made before his/her18th birthday

It 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 to travel. Thus, we recommended that you apply for your child’s U.S. passport when submitting the application for the CRBA.

Even if your child holds another nationality, he or she must enter and exit the United States on a U.S. passport.

Make your online appointment here.
