Apply for a U.S. Passport

We Process U.S. Passport Applications

New applications for U.S. Passports are processed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. No appointment is needed.

All persons applying for a new passport, including children, must be present. Both parents must sign the application of a passport for a child under the age of 16.

Renewals

We do not process passport renewals. Renewals are done on your own, which saves you a processing fee of $25. If you want to pay the processing fee and reapply as a new applicant, we can do that.

Photos

Passport photos are available for $10. We recommend that you do not wear white clothing for a passport picture.

Save $1 on your passport photo.
