Message for U.S. Citizens: Launch of Online Fee Payments for Adult Passport Renewals on July 25, 2021

The U.S. Embassy San Salvador is pleased to announce a new option to pay for your adult passport renewal by mail application, which is the best option for fastest service for those who qualify.  Beginning July 25, 2021, passport applicants wishing to pay for their DS-82 renewal application online may visit U.S. Embassy San Salvador Passport Services Website to determine eligibility to use this option and for more information. Only adult applicants submitting their application thru local courier service Cargo Expreso, will be able to use the online payment option.  If eligible, applicants 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. A cashier’s check can still be used, but hopefully this new option will make the renewal process more convenient and get you on your way.

For any questions about this online fee payment option please contact the American Citizen Services unit at
