Become a Passport Acceptance Facility

We want you to join our network of acceptance facilities! Each facility provides an important public service, and an easy way to submit passport applications in local communities. 

What is a Passport Acceptance Facility?

An acceptance facility is a government office that accepts passport applications. Each facility verifies the information of adults and children using Form DS-11. You then send applications and supporting documents to us for processing. 

Benefits of Joining the Acceptance Facility Program

  • Get $35 for each application accepted 
  • Provide a valuable service to Americans
  • Increase your visibility in your community and help you reach more people
  • Get support and training from the U.S. Department of State on how to accept applications

  • Be a federal, state, county, city, or municipal office. Examples include U.S. post offices, public libraries, and public universities. No non-profits, religious, or commercial organizations.

    • At least 18 years of age
    • U.S. citizens or U.S. nationals
