Passports

The City of Plymouth has resumed passport services by appointment for new  Passport Applications from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.   You can schedule your appointment here.

Passport Renewals do not require making a personal appearance before an Acceptance Agent; therefore, we do not accept Passport Renewal Applications (Form DS-82) at this office. *renewals for children under 16 can be processed at our office.


A passport book is valid for land, air and sea travel.  The passport card is only valid for land and sea travel between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean region, and Bermuda.

Please Note: Children under age 16 will be able to continue crossing land and sea borders using only a U.S. birth certificate (or other form of U.S. citizenship such as a naturalization certificate.). The original birth certificate or a copy may be used.
