U.S. Passport Applications

All persons applying for U.S. passports in Suriname or French Guiana must appear before a Consular Officer at the U.S. Embassy in Paramaribo, Suriname.

A comprehensive overview on applying for a passport outside of the United States can be found on the State Department's travel website 

Important Notice on entering or departing the U.S.

According to Section 215 of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1185), it is illegal for an American citizen to enter or leave the U.S. on anything other than an American passport. This applies to dual citizens as well, meaning that persons holding both American and another country's citizenship must enter and depart from the U.S. on a valid U.S. passport. This applies to children as well as adults.

Note that U.S. citizens, including those who also hold another country's passport, are required by law to travel to and from the United States with valid U.S. passports.

For further information you may also refer to the U.S. Department of State website on passport applications.  However, please remember that procedures for passport services abroad vary according to the country in which the passport application is made.
