Passport Information

Passport Book or Passport Card

International travel requires a passport book or a passport card.

Photographs: You must submit ONE 2" X 2" color passport photo taken within the last six months. Photographs must meet U.S. government requirements, which are listed on their website. Walmart here in Brewton takes passport photos and most Walgreens and CVS. If you wear glasses you must take them off for photo.

Proof of Citizenship: Expired passport issued to an adult or Naturalization Certificate (must be original) or Certified Copy. Persons born in Alabama can go to any local Health Department to purchase a certified copy of their Birth Certificate. It will be issued at the time of purchase. If you were born in another state, you must contact that state’s Division of Vital Statistics. There are several sites on the Internet that can assist you in this matter. Persons 15 and older, who held a prior passport, can use that Passport in lieu of the certified birth certificate. This instrument will be submitted with your application and returned within two weeks after receipt of your passport.

Passport Fee: Personal check, cashier’s check or money order payable to U.S. Department of State. Fees can be combined for persons applying at the same time.
