The U.S. Department of State no longer adds visa pages to U.S. passports. Applicants in need of additional pages in their valid passports must now obtain a new passport.
New Photo Requirements
You must remove your eyeglasses for U.S. passport and visa photos. This policy was enacted to enhance the security of the application process and verify your identify faster.
You may wear glasses for U.S. passport and U.S. visa photos only if you have a medical issue such as recent surgery requiring eyeglasses to protect your eyes. If you must wear eyeglasses for medical reasons, you must submit a signed statement with your application from a medical professional or health practitioner (such as a surgeon or ophthalmologist).
We encourage all U.S. citizens residing or travelling in Gabon to enroll to receive updates from the Embassy. This allows the Embassy to know more accurately the number of U.S. citizens in Gabon, to contact U.S. citizens if necessary, and to quickly identify your emergency contact should you require such assistance. There is no fee for this service. U.S. citizens may enroll online through the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program or in person at the Embassy.
