World of possibility

If you want to travel the world, USPS can help.

Thousands of Post Offices across the nation accept first-time passport applications for the U.S. State Department.

These offices can also assist customers with passport renewal applications, and some offices can take customers’ passport photos.

The Postal Service collects fees for some passport services, making them a revenue source for the organization.

To serve passport customers, USPS offers the Retail Customer Appointment Scheduler, a tool that allows individuals to go online to schedule first-time passport application appointments at participating Post Offices.

Additionally, offers guidance for passport customers, including detailed instructions on obtaining first-time passports and for adults and minors and renewing passports by mail.
