Applicants and Relevant parties:
The applicant must be present. Two parents and the child(ren) must be present for all minor applications under the age of 16. See Important Information below for more details.

The library does not provide photo services. A passport photo must be 2 x 2-inches in size with a white background printed on photo quality paper. The U.S. Department of State has strict photo guidelines and acceptance of your photo is always at the discretion of the U.S. passport agency.
