Passport Services at HPL

HPL joins the U.S. Department of State’s Houston Passport Agency to provide passport services for U.S. citizens in Houston. 

To apply for a passport at HPL, please provide the following:

  • Completed passport application Form DS-11

Obtain application forms from HPL passport acceptance locations listed below or online from the U.S. Department of State.  (Form DS-11 is required to be filled out in black ink only).

  • Proof of U.S. Citizenship (one of the following)
    • Original birth certificate or certified copy issued by the city, county, or state
    • Previous U.S. passport
    • Naturalization Certificate
    • Certificate of Citizenship
    • Consular Report of Birth Abroad
    • For minors under 18, the birth certificate must be presented

    • Prior U.S. passport
    • Government employee ID
    • Official Military ID card
  • Photocopy of Proof of Citizenship
    • Photocopy of the document that is being submitted as proof of U.S. Citizenship

  • Processing Fees (two separate payments are required)
    • Payment One:

Check or money order is required for passport application fees which must be paid directly to the “U.S. Department of State” by the applicant.  Total fees will vary depending on the age of the applicant and whether expedited services are requested.  A separate check or money order will be required for each applicant. Check the U.S. Passports & International Travel website to calculate your passport application fees or contact a passport facility for payment amounts.

  • Payment Two:

Applicants must pay a $25 processing fee to HPL or a $32 fee for processing and passport photos. We accept all forms of payment other than American Express for the processing fee (cash, check, credit card, debit card or money order). If using check or money order for payment two, it should be made out to "City of Houston."

HPL will track applications sent to the U.S. Department of State via USPS Priority Mail.

No appointments are necessary and all applications are taken on a first come, first served, walk-in basis.  Often times we have a large number of people requesting passports, so it may be necessary to close the waiting list due to high volume.

Customers can contact a passport facility listed below for any additional inquiries.
