Applying for Citizenship Overseas

Most children born to U.S. citizens overseas have U.S. citizenship at birth. To get information about recording your child's birth or adoption, call your U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

The Consulate prepares a Consular Report of Birth (FS-240) and can help you get a passport and Social Security number for your child.

There is a fee for the FS-240. For cost information, check with the U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
