  • Expedite processing
  • Passport photo service for $14.50 Cancelled until further notice.
  • Forms for other passport services

*We do not accept passport renewal applications for adults as this process can be completed by mail - unless you were 15 or younger when you received your most recent passport or it has been expired for over 5 years.

Passport Services hours are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please use our online appointment system to schedule an appointment.

We regret that we do not accept walk-ins and ask that you book an appointment early as wait times for appointments are typically 1-2 months away.
