Voluntariness, intent, and no undue influence by other parties are key factors in a renunciation. Potential renunciants are therefore expected to submit their own documents and not have them submitted by someone else on their behalf. For this same reason we cannot schedule appointments for family members on the same day. Additionally, the Privacy Act applies and the Embassy cannot communicate with anyone other than the applicant directly.
When you have all the required documents, and you are ready to request an appointment, you should send scanned copies of them in 1 (one) PDF File to:
BernCLN@State.gov (Subject: CLN – LASTNAME, First name).
You will receive a reply with an assigned appointment date and time.
Appointments are scheduled approximately 3-6 weeks in advance, on a first come, first served basis. Please request an appointment only if you are able to attend.
Please note: There is no walk-in service for Loss of Nationality Services.
These services are by appointment only and CANNOT be scheduled through the Online Appointment System.
