Current regulations state in addition to presenting a valid passport book when returning to the United States by air, you’ll need to present a U.S. passport at land borders and seaports of entry to return home. You can also use a passport as a valid form of ID when traveling within the United States.

The Postal Service accepts passports and mails them to the U.S. Department of State for processing.

Passport fees for adults (16 years and older) are $130 payable to the Department of State for the application fee and a separate payment of $35 to the Postal Service for its acceptance fee.

For persons under 16, the total cost is $100 to the Department of State and a $35 processing fee to the Postal Service.

The Postal Service also offers a passport photo service at a cost of $15.

The passport application must be paid by cash or check. Credit cards, debit cards, cash or check can be used to cover the cost of photos and passport acceptance fees.

Passport application requirements:

  • Bring in proper proof of U.S. citizenship. This must be either a certified birth certificate issued by the city, country or state; a previous U.S. passport; a certificate of citizenship; or a naturalization certificate. (Please note:  a hospital-issued birth certificate alone is not acceptable).
  • Bring in proof of identity. This must be either a previous U.S. passport, a naturalization certificate; a certificate of citizenship; or a current valid driver’s license, a government ID or military photo ID.
  • Passport photograph services will be available on site for a fee of $15.
  • To save time in this process, customers can download a passport application at the Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov.
  • All applicants must appear in person (including minors).  Applicants under age 16 must appear with both parents. If one parent is not available, a notarized authorization from the absent parent is required.
