Does my child have to be present at the passport acceptance agent’s office?

When applying for a passport for a minor, the minor (under age 16) and both parents/guardians must be present at the passport acceptance agent’s office. This is to protect the identity of your child. If both parents/guardians are not able to be present at the office, then one parent/guardian must attend with a notarized document from the other parent or guardian.

What happens if there’s a problem with my application?

When you submit an application with Texas Passport Center, we are going to do everything we can to trouble shoot any potential issues before we turn them into the U.S Department of State. When we turn in the application you have the option of allowing us to know about issues or not. If there is an issue after submission and you have given us permission to receive these notifications, then the U.S. Department of State will notified both you and us of the issue and we will help you to remedy the situation.

Will my old passport be returned to me?

Many people like to have their old passports as a keepsake. Although your current passport does need to be turned in with your application, that passport will be returned to you. The canceled passport will have two small holes punched in the bottom of your identification page to mark it as canceled.

Can I turn in a handwritten application?

When utilizing a passport expediting company, handwritten applications are not accepted. The U. S. Department of State offers an online version. This version prints with a bar code and eliminates many mistakes made when deciphering handwriting. Texas Passport Center will help you with this process.
