To apply for a U.S. passport for the first time or to renew a passport by mail forms are available at the US Department of State website or at this office. Forms should be filled out carefully in black ink only, completing all required information before coming in.
Costs & Forms of Payment
The cost of obtaining passports is the same regardless of where you apply. See passport fees at the US Department of State website. Passport photos, with the exception of infants can be taken in this office for $10.00. Due to the risk to the infant during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not able to take their photos at this time.
Be sure to bring your checkbook. One check must be written for each passport application, and one for any execution fees and photos. Personal checks, money orders, bank drafts, or cashier's checks drawn on a US bank are acceptable for each application. Cash, credit cards, debit cards and temporary checks are not acceptable forms of payment to the US Department of State.
What to Bring
A completed, but unsigned passport application, certified birth certificate, and current driver's license will be enough for many applications. Oregon IDs, Provisional Licenses and out of state drivers' licenses will need additional identifications. Additional documentation will always be needed for children, or citizens born outside of the USA. Children 15 years old and under must have both parents appear with them when applying. Please bring your own black pen.
