  • Lost/Stolen Information

Requirements for obtaining a passport book and/or passport card:

  • All applicants must be present during application process.
  • Both parents must be present for applicants under the age of 16. If one parent cannot be present, that parent must fill out a Parent Consent Form (DS-3053) and have their signature notarized.
  • Must provide Proof of Citizenship (Certified Birth Certificate issued by the State or County - abstract certificates are not acceptable, Prior Passport, or Naturalization Certificate).
  • Valid government issued identification (Driver's License, California ID Card, or Military ID). Minors will use their parent's ID.
  • One passport photo. Photos must be COLORED, 2" x 2" in size with a white or off-white background. For your convenience, the library can process passport photos for $10 per applicant.
  • Regular candid photos and do-it-yourself booth photos are NOT ACCEPTABLE. Photographs should be taken in normal street attire - uniforms, or clothing that looks like a uniform, should not be worn.
  • Two separate payments.

Proof of parent relationship:

For children under the age of 16, the two-parent consent law requires proof of relationship with parents. This is established through the Certified Birth Certificate.
