Important Reminder: Starting January 5, 2015 the Embassy in Kuala Lumpur requires appointments for all routine notary and passport services. Please bring your appointment confirmation sheet and arrive at the embassy 10 minutes before your appointment time.
Please visit our website at: https://evisaforms.state.gov/acs/default.asp?postcode=KLL&appcode=1 to make an appointment for all services including notary services, authentications, passport renewals, Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) and additional visa pages.
Those people picking up passports, Federal Benefits checks/correspondence, or submitting additional information in relation to a Consular Report of Birth Abroad do not need to make an appointment.

We also encourage all Americans residing or traveling abroad to register with the nearest U.S. Embassy. The service is free and fast, and allows us to get in touch with you in an emergency, and provide information on security conditions and upcoming events of interest to Americans. You can help ensure your own security by monitoring this site and U.S. Department of State's travel website for updated information about conditions in Malaysia and around the world.
