A passport is an internationally recognized travel document that verifies the identity and nationality of the bearer. A valid U.S. passport is required to enter and leave most foreign countries. Only the U.S. Department of State has the authority to grant, issue or verify United States passports.
New Application for a U.S. Passport
To obtain a passport for the first time, you can attend the Kalona Post Office's Passport Program, with two photographs of yourself, proof of U.S. citizenship, and a valid form of photo identification such as a driver’s license.
The program will be taking place from 10-1 p.m. on Saturday, January 5th, 2008 at the Kalona Public Library.
You’ll need to apply in person if you are applying for a U.S. passport for the first time: if your expired U.S. passport is not in your possession; if your previous U.S. passport has expired and was issued more than 15 years ago; if your previous U.S. passport was issued when you were under age 16; or if your currently valid U.S. passport has been lost or stolen.
For more information on getting a new passport, please visit the How to get a passport page on the U.S. Department of State's website.
Renewal of a U.S. Passport
You can renew by mail if: Your most recent passport is available to submit and it is not damaged; you received the passport within the past 15 years; you were over age 16 when it was issued; you still have the same name, or can legally document your name change.
You can get a passport renewal application form by downloading it from the U.S. Department of State website.
If your passport has been, altered or damaged, you cannot apply by mail. You must apply in person.
