A few things to keep in mind before your appointment:


  • Passports that have been expired for less than five years may be renewed directly by mail.  Check for details or ask at the desk for a renewal form.

  • Passport applicants need to present government-issued photo ID (commonly a Driver's License) and applications must include proof of citizenship which will be submitted with the application to the Department of State.  (A previous passport or an original birth certificate with registrar's raised seal are acceptable.  A photocopy of a birth certificate is not)

  • Fees paid by check - Two separate fees are required, one variable fee for passport services to the US department of State, and a separate $35 execution fee to the Town of Upton.  Payment to the state department is required in the form of a check or money order made out to the US Department of State, with separate payment for each applicant.  (the current fees for a standard application are $130 for Adults and $100 for children under 16).  The additional execution fee of $35 to the library can be in the form of cash or check.

  • The library can NOT provide passport photo - these must be acquired before your appointment.  (common photo sources are department stores, pharmacies and AAA offices.)

  • Expedited processing is available for an additional fee of $60 to the Department of State.

  • Children under the age of 16 typically require BOTH parents to be present.

  • Most appointments will take 15-20 minutes, but may take longer for multiple applicants.

  • Please fill out your application in BLACK ink only.

Please call ahead to speak with one of our passport acceptance agents.
