Message for U.S. Citizens: Launch of Online Fee Payments for Adult Passport Renewals

Location: Hong Kong and Macau

Beginning March 6, 2022, adult passport applicants in Hong Kong or Macau who are renewing their passport via mail can use Pay.Gov to pay the passport fees.  This means applicants who choose to renew through the mail at the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macau will no longer need to obtain a bank draft from a local financial institution and can instead pay the fees online before mailing their application to the consulate for processing.

This service only applies to adult passport applicants who are renewing their full validity, ten-year passport, via mail.  Minor children and first-time adult applicants will still need to apply in-person and pay the fees at the consulate.

Payment can be submitted via U.S. or international credit or debit card, electronic funds transfer from a U.S.-based bank account, Amazon Pay, or Pay Pal.

For additional information on eligibility for the program, please visit our website.
