What is a passport?

A passport is an official document that proves your citizenship and identity. It allows you to travel internationally and is typically required for air travel. Once you have your passport, you can use it to enter any country that has an agreement with your home country.

Passports are also necessary for many other international activities, such as applying for a visa or opening a bank account.

Why you need a passport

Travel abroad

A passport is an essential document for anyone who plans to travel internationally. Whenever you go through customs or immigration, they will always ask to see your passport. This is to ensure that you are who you say you are, and that you are allowed to be in the country.

Get an additional form of identification

A passport can also be used as an additional form of identification when applying for a job, opening a bank account, or renting an apartment. When used in conjunction with other forms of ID, such as a driver's license or birth certificate, a passport can help to prove your identity.

Frequently asked questions

How do I receive my passport?

Your passport and relevant documents may arrive in multiple shipments, depending on the types you requested. For example:

  1. Passport book or card – Your passport book or card and your citizenship documents may come in two separate mailings within ten days of each other.
  2. Passport book and passport card – Your documents, card, and book may arrive in three individual mailings. The second and third packages should arrive within ten days of the first.

How much will it cost?

The cost to apply for a new passport depends on the passport type and your age. The passport fee through the government varies by type and is as follows:

  1. Passport book (adult) – $165
  2. Passport book (minor) – $135
  3. Passport card (adult) – $65
  4. Passport card (minor) – $50
  5. Passport card and book (adult) – $195
  6. Passport card and book (minor) – $150

When can I expect my passport?

You can expect to receive a status update 14 days after your application is filed. Typically, an expedited passport will take 4-6 weeks to process, ship, and arrive; however, it could take up to 12 weeks due to extenuating circumstances. If you have an international trip planned, be sure to apply at least six months in advance.
