Passport Information

We encourage you to visit the US Department of State website to learn more about applying for and renewing passports. Online processing is not available at this time, however,  you are able to fill out the appropriate forms online and print to bring to our office.  We strongly recommend that you print your forms single sided and in black ink and not in color.

Passport Payments

Two separate payments are required.  One payment is for the passport application fee and the other is for the processing fee. See the fee chart below. 

The passport application fee must be in the form of a check or money order payable to the US Department of State.  Starter checks, cash, or credit cards cannot be accepted for passport application fees.  Note:  If you are having more than one passport processed you are required to have a separate check for each passport application fee being processed.

The processing fees are payable to the Grand Traverse County Treasurer.   We accept check, cash, or credit card (fees apply) for processing fees.  If you are having more than one passport processed we can coPASSPORTmbine all processing fees into one payment.
