Our facility will cease processing passport applications effective 3/19/2020. Our intentions are to resume processing passport applications as soon as the US Department of State resumes normal operations. However, this is subject to change depending on the ever changing Coronavirus crisis. Please check back at a later time for any updates.  You may access the US Department of State's website at to research available acceptance facilities and travel information or restrictions.

As a Passport Acceptance Facility, we will accept your completed application for a new passport and forward it to the Passport Services section of the U.S. Department of State for an issuance determination.
