The Florida State University International Programs office has been officially designated as a Passport Acceptance Facility by the U.S. Department of State. Students, faculty, staff, and members of the community are now able to apply for a U.S. passport and/or passport card directly through our office.

As a Passport Acceptance Facility, we are authorized to receive your completed application for a U.S. passport and submit the application along with all necessary documentation to Passport Services.  Passport Services will then determine eligibility for a U.S. Passport.  It is important to note that only the U.S. Department of State can make the final decision to issue a passport to an individual.

As part of our services, we are happy to provide the necessary forms required to apply for a U.S. passport, as well as other passport-related forms.  We are also authorized to accept applications for the new U.S. passport card.  Finally, we also offer on-site passport photo service.

U.S. PASSPORT CARD

If you are traveling on a cruise to Mexico, the Caribbean, or Bermuda, or if you are traveling by land to Mexico or Canada then you may wish to apply for the new U.S. Passport Card. The passport card is smaller and less expensive than the passport book. Please note, however, that you are not able to travel by airplane to a foreign country with the passport card. For more information about the U.S. passport card, please visit the Department of State’s website or call our office.

PHOTOS:

The FSU Passport Acceptance Facility can provide photo services for your passport, visa, and other application needs. Photos are $9.99 plus sales tax (payable any way BUT cash). If you require photos for another country’s visa, please speak with one of our agents to determine if we can support the necessary photo measurements.

PASSPORT RENEWALS

If you want to renew your passport, you may qualify for renewal by mail. A person qualifies for renewal by mail if your most recent U.S. passport meets the following criteria:

  • Is undamaged and can be submitted with your application
  •  
  • Was issued when you were age 16 or older
  •  
  • Was issued within the last 15 years
  •  
  • Was issued in your current name or you can legally document your name change
  •  

If you qualify for renewal by mail, our office CANNOT accept your application and you must mail it off on your own. We can, however, provide you with the appropriate renewal form. You may also obtain the necessary photo for your application from our office for a fee. If you do not meet the above criteria, you must apply for a new passport in person.
