The U.S. State Department will be at Plymouth State University, Saturday, April 2, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., at the PSU Ice Arena on Route 175-A to assist community members, faculty, staff, and students in processing U.S. passport applications. Passports or passport cards are now needed to travel to Canada and Mexico. To apply for a U.S. passport or passport card, visit www.travel.state.gov .
- New applications cost $135, and require proof of citizenship (no photocopied birth certificates), valid form of photo ID and a completed U.S. passport application. (Form DS 11)
- Passport renewals (Form DS 82) cost $110 and require a renewal application, two (2) recent 2″ X 2″ photos and a marriage certificate or court order, if your name has changed.
- Passport for Minors (under age 16) cost $105 and require a completed U.S. passport application, proof of citizenship (no photocopied birth certificates), both parents or legal guardians consent and a valid photo I.D., or valid photo I.D. from both parents.
- Passport cards cost $55, and require a completed application for a U.S. passport (Form DS 11), valid photo I.D. and proof of citizenship (no photocopied birth certificates). Passport card applications are the same as the passport book applications, however the cost is significantly less. If you are planning to drive or cruise over our borders into Canada or Mexico/the Caribbean islands, the passport card will suffice. If you are planning to take air travel to our neighboring countries, a passport book is a requirement.

Application fees are payable to the U.S. Department of State. Checks or money orders only – no cash or credit cards accepted. For more information, contact PSU’s Global Education Office or call 535-2336.
