Please have your applications filled out and ready prior to your appointment. If applications or required items are incomplete, or you are 10 minutes late for your appointment, you will need to reschedule. All passports MUST be executed by staff by 4:30pm. Any incomplete applications will be turned away after that time and will need to be brought in a different time to be accepted.

Bring a Check or Money Order

The U.S. State Department requires that you pay their fee by check or money order with a separate check per application. Please make it out to "U.S. Department of State."
You can pay the $35 City of Orem fee separately by cash, card, or check.
