Health Alert – U.S. Embassy Lome, Togo (April 7, 2020)

Location: Lome, Togo

Event: Current Status of Passport Applications

Because of public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, effective March 20, 2020, the U.S Department of State is limiting its passport operations.  Effective April 2, the Department of State has further limited routine passport and citizenship services overseas. 

For U.S. citizens in Togo, we are only able to offer passport services for customers with a medical or humanitarian emergency and in need of a passport for immediate international travel within 72 hours.  All other long-term U.S. citizens residing in Togo should delay renewing a passport until routine passport services resume.

If you previously applied for a passport or citizenship service, you should expect significant delays receiving your passport or your citizenship documents.  You may contact to check the status of your passport or Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) if you were approved but have not yet received the document.

Please encourage any U.S. citizens you know who are residing in Togo to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) so that they may receive the latest COVID-19 updates from the Department of State and the U.S. Embassy in Lome.
