Passport Applications


Passport Applications

​​​Passport and Passport Card Applications may be submitted through the Oakland County Elections Office, located in the West Wing Extension from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.   Passports are required for all air travel.  Passport cards are for land border travel only.  For complete passport and passport card information visit the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs.

Passport Renewals do not require making a personal appearance before an Acceptance Agent; therefor, we do not accept Passport Renewal Applications ( Form DS-82) at this office.

Requirements:

  • Each applicant must be present when submitting the application.
  • A minor who is 16 or 17 years of age must appear in person and sign his/her own passport application. The minor may submit his/her own identification. Minors age 16 and 17 who do not have sufficient personal identification may have their parent(s) identify them. If this is the case, the parent must submit his/her identification and both the parent and the minor must sign the application in the presence of the Acceptance Agent.
  • Both parents are required to be present for minors under 16 years old unless you bring a notarized consent form signed by the absent parent and a photo copy of their I.D..
  • Each applicant must bring a certified copy of his/her birth certificate (or original naturalization papers) to be forwarded to the Passport Office.  Your documents will be returned by the U.S. Department of State when the passport is issued.

How to Apply:
 
Fill out the Passport Application (used for both passport and passport card).

(Search for other local passport acceptance facilities online through the U.S. Department of State site.)

Once your Passport is processed:

  • Your passport will be sent to you by U.S. priority mail.
  • Your certified birth certificate/naturalization papers will be sent back to you in a separate envelope.

Check on the status of your passport and get additional information online at the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs.
