It is our pleasure to offer you the opportunity to apply for a passport through our office between the hours of 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday excluding County holidays. As an Official Agent of the United States Department of State, our goal is to facilitate the process of acquiring a passport for Aransas County residents, as well as any U.S. Citizens who may be visiting Aransas County.

To apply for a passport, you will need to prove U.S. citizenship and your identity. A certified copy of your birth certificate or an expired passport and your Driver's License are most commonly used. If a Birth Certificate will be used for proving U.S Citizenship please bring a certified copy along with an additional copy of the Birth Certificate, or, an additional certified copy. You will need one (1) passport sized photograph. Several vendors locally provide this service. Uniforms of any kind should not be worn unless you are in the active military.

The fee for a passport book for an adult (16 years and older) is $110.00 and is good for 10 years. For minors (15 years and younger) the fee is $80.00 and is valid for 5 years. The fee for a passport card for applicants 16 years old and older is $30.00.   The passport card fee is $15.00 for minors 15 years old and younger. For each new application presented there is also a $25.00 execution fee. Only one execution fee is charged per application. There is no execution fee for renewals.

Please allow at least 6 weeks to receive your passport. It is possible to have an application for a passport book expedited for an additional fee of $80.66 and one overnight, postage paid envelope. Expedited passports will be received in approximately 3 weeks.  Faster service is available in emergency situations by going directly to the Houston Passport Agency, by appointment only.
