Additionally, you will find the necessary forms required to apply for a U.S. passport, as well as other passport-related forms and onsite passport photo services at The SPOT. Forms may also be completed online at http://www.travel.state.gov and then brought to The SPOT for processing.

Passport Renewals

You may qualify for a renewal by mail if you meet certain requirements.  If requirements are met, a visit to The SPOT will not be necessary. Visit travel.state.gov for current information.

If you do not meet the renewal criteria, you must apply for a new passport in person.

 

Passports for Minors (Under 16 years of age)

All Minor applicants, including renewals, must apply in person.

Both parents or guardians should appear with the child. If both parents/guardians cannot be present, see the parental consent section for additional document requirements.

Visit the parents’ corner for specific requirements when applying for your child’s passport.
