City of Granite Falls Passport and Photo Services

Please have the following ready when you come in:
• Check or Money Order for payment.
• Completed DS-11 application form (for each applicant).

If you are planning for international travel, please check the country information on the U.S. Department of State’s website (click here) to see if there are any passport validity requirements for the country you wish to visit.

Current processing times for new and renewal applications are eight to eleven weeks for routine processing, and five to seven weeks for expedited processing (additional fee required). Processing times begin the day the Department of State receives your application at a passport agency or center, not when you mail your application or apply at a local acceptance facility.

Suppose you have urgent or emergency travel requirements or plan to travel within five to seven weeks. In that case, you will need to contact the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-427-2778 to schedule an appointment with the Seattle Passport Agency. For more information, visit travel.state.gov.

When you meet with a Passport Technician, please bring the following:
1. Payment for the passport fee must be either a check or money order payable to the U.S. Department of State (No Counter Checks).
