To apply for a first time passport you need to fill out the Application for a U.S. Passport, which you can find by clicking the link above or you may pick one up at our office.

All passport applications are done by appointment only. Appointment times start at 8:30 AM, running every 30 minutes, with the last appointment being 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday (unless closed for a holiday). If you are unable to make your appointment, please call us at (810) 385-4489 to cancel or reschedule.

When you come to your appointment you will need to bring the following:

• Application
• Birth Certificate or Proof of U.S. Citizenship

• Passport Photo – We offer this service at the Township for $15 per person
• Application Fees – Check/Money Order/Bank Draft payable to “U.S. Department of State.” Fees range from $30 to $140 depending on your choice of passport product and if its for a minor or an adult. Other additional fees include fees for expedited or priority handling. All associated application fees are mailed directly to the US Department of State and cash is not accepted.
• Execution Fees – $25 per passport. Check/Cash/Money Order/Bank Draft/Credit Card (3% service charge added) payable to “Fort Gratiot Township.”
 
If the application is for a child under 16, both of the parents or the child’s legal guardians must appear with the child. However, there are a few exceptions to both parents having to be physically present. Please contact our office at (810) 385-4489 or visit travel.state.gov for additional information.
