A Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) is a formal document certifying the acquisition of United States citizenship at birth for a person born abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents who meet the requirements for transmitting citizenship under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). U.S. non-citizen nationals are also eligible for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, using the non-citizen option.
This new online process (eCRBA) allows U.S. citizen parents to complete a Consular Report of Birth Abroad application online, upload all required documents, and submit payment prior to the in-person interview.
To begin the online application, you need to create a MyTravelGov account. MyTravelGov is a secure, encrypted portal. Once you complete the online application and submit payment, you may schedule your appointment at the U.S. Embassy Antananarivo (see STEP 3).
To apply for a CRBA online, you MUST meet all the following criteria:
Your child must be present at the interview. Both parents must be present for children under 16. If one parent cannot be present, please see the instructions on this page under #7, “Show Parental Consent.”
