The appointment calendar under PASSPORT AND CITIZENSHIP is open for:

Passport and personal number applications: Tuesdays and Thursdays

UDI Applications for Reclaim and Retention of citizenship: Mondays and Wednesdays.

To prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we can have only one appointment ongoing at the time, limiting the number of available appointments each day.

The calendar is open 3 weeks into the future, taking into consideration that the Covid-19 situation in San Francisco could change rapidly, as well as possible challenges to the health of our staff.
If there are no appointments, it means we are fully booked. You will then have to wait for a day or two for new appointments to become available.

Please take note of the following before booking an appointment:
On 16th of November, 2020, as COVID-19 cases continue to increase across the country, the governors of California, Oregon and Washington have issued travel advisories urging visitors entering their states or returning home from travel outside these states to self-quarantine to slow the spread of the virus. The travel advisories urge against non-essential out-of-state travel, ask people to self-quarantine for 14 days after arriving from another state or country and encourage residents to stay local.
