- Birth – Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA)
- Replace or Amend a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA)
A child born abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents may acquire U.S. citizenship at birth if certain statutory requirements are met. The child’s parents may apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) to document that the child is a U.S. citizen. A CRBA is proof of U.S. citizenship and may be used to obtain a U.S. passport and register for school in the United States, among other purposes. A CRBA is not a travel document.
