Passport Acceptance Agency

passportPlanning a great international vacation, a business trip to foreign lands, or a romantic honeymoon abroad? Now is the time to apply for a passport! Even if you have traveled outside the U.S. before without one, increased security in all countries means a passport is required for travel outside the United States.

South Charleston Public Library accepts passport applications for the State Department. Several library staff members are Passport Acceptance Agents and can guide you through the application process.

Applications are available at the Library or at Department of State.

You must bring ID, proof of citizenship, birth certificate certified by city, state, or county and a 2 by 2 color photo. We are now able to take photos! Photos are $10.00 per person.
