The Embassy of the United States of America will never ask for payment through wire or money transfer services (Western Union, Paypal, etc) or attempt to communicate with you about a process through informal means (Whatsapp, Facebook).
To prevent fraudulent schemes, we remind you of the only authorized points to make payments for our consular services. Below, we detail those which apply to American Citizen Services (US passport, Consular Report of Birth ‘CRBA’, and notarial services)
- The cashier inside the Embassy
- Consular Agency in Punta Cana (only passports)
For mail-in passport renewals, accepted through Domex, a cashier’s check made out to the “U.S. Embassy Santo Domingo” from one of the following authorized Banks: Banreservas, Banco Popular, Banco BHD Leon y CitiBank.
