  • Original proof of U.S. citizenship (birth/naturalization certificate, old passport)
  • Valid, unexpired photo ID
  • A 2 x 2 inch passport photo (no glasses)
  • Two payments
    • 1 check (no starter checks) or money order for the U.S. Department of State for each application
      • Passport book: adults - $110; minors 15 and under - $80
      • Passport card: adults - $30; minors 15 and under - $15
      • Expedite fee: $60
    • 1 check (no starter checks) or cash for Prince William County
      • Acceptance facility fee: $35
    • No debit or credit cards
  • The applicant must appear in person, regardless of age.

For children ages 15 and under, you also need:

  • Proof of parental relationship (original birth certificate, adoption papers)
  • All custodial parents or legal guardians must appear in person, or the non-appearing parent must submit a notarized DS-3053 and photocopy of ID.

*This list is not comprehensive. Please visit or call 1-877-2778 for more details on requirements.


Please note that if you need to renew your passport and are over 16, you can renew by mail using Form DS-82 if your most recent passport meets all five of these requirements:

  1. Is submitted with your application
  2. Is undamaged (other than normal "wear and tear")
  3. Was issued when you were age 16 or older
  4. Was issued within the last 15 years
  5. Was issued in your current name (or you can document your name change with an original or certified copy of your marriage certificate, divorce decree, or court order)

Our acceptance facilities cannot process DS-82 applications. For assistance with the DS-82 form please refer to or call 1-877-487-2778.


Our facilities offer Passport application review and submission services on an appointment only basis, so it is necessary to book an appointment in advance to submit a Passport application. 

Only 1 applicant may be booked for each 30-minute timeslot. Customers who arrive more than 10 minutes late to their appointment will lose their scheduled appointment.

Please ensure that you have all items listed above at the time of the appointment for each application: if required items are missing you will be turned away. Appointments are available to book 2 weeks in advance. If there are no available appointments, please check the website next week. Appointments fill quickly so please book as far in advance as possible.

If you are having any difficulties booking an appointment, please call the library branch at the number listed below. Passport application review and submission services are offered by appointment only at the following locations:
