Convenient collection and delivery for UK applicants

On behalf of the Consular Section of the US Embassy in London, we provide a range of collection and delivery services to assist applicants who are in the UK in applying for, and receiving back, USA passports.

If you are eligible to apply for a US passport by mail we offer a secure collection service. Visit the Passport Information section of the US Embassy website to see if you are eligible for this service.

If you are required (or choose) to make your application in person at the Embassy, we can then securely deliver your passport and documents to you once your application has been processed. This DX Passport Delivery Service can be purchased from the DX representative at the American Citizen Services on the day of your scheduled appointment.

Please note that DX does not accept cash as payment for courier services at the American Embassy. We do not accept American Express. Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards are accepted.

Passport Collections

If you are applying for a US Passport service that does not involve a personal appearance at the Embassy then DX can arrange to collect your application and any required documentation.

DX can arrange the collection of items from Customers (between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday) for onward delivery to the US Embassy, and the Customer shall allow 4 working days for the item to reach the US Embassy. At the time of booking you must also book a return delivery service back to your preferred address once the Embassy has completed processing.

Please note, DX can not give any advise on fees or acceptable payment methods for passport renewals. This information can be found on the US Embassy website. Please note that we can only arrange collection if the application is complete.
