Launch of Passport Renewal Online Fee Payment Program

The U.S. Embassy in Malaysia is pleased to announce the launch of an online payment option for adult passport renewal for U.S. citizens in Malaysia.  Qualified applicants participating in our passport renewal by mail program will no longer need to make payment via bank check, which we understand can be difficult for those without local bank accounts.  


Effective January 15, 2023, all passport applicants eligible to renew by mail may submit payment for their passport application fees online via the U.S. government’s secure payment site using the following payment methods: 

  • U.S. or international credit or debit card
  • Electronic funds transfer from a U.S.-based bank account
  • PayPal
  • Amazon Pay 

Payments for courier fees may now be made to Aramex, our designated courier service, in cash rather than bank check.  


For questions about these new payment options, please review the guidance on our website and contact the American Citizen Services Unit at KLACS@state.gov if you still have questions.
