  • All passport applicants must be present at the time of the appointment
  • Children 15 and under must have BOTH parents present with an ID.  If one parent cannot be present, Form DS-3053 needs to be filled out by the non-appearing parent, notarized and accompanied by a photocopy of the front and back of that parent's ID .  For more information, please contact the Passport Agent at 303-658-2337.
  • Children 16-17 years of age must have one parent present with an ID.
  • Payment of Fees - Checks, Money Orders or Cashier's Checks ONLY.  (Please call for the correct amounts.  Fees are split into two payments:  one payment to the U.S. Department of State and one payment to the City of Westminster.)

Current processing of a new passport is six (6) weeks.  Passport applications may be expedited for an additional fee.  If you require your passport within two (2) weeks, visit the U.S. Department of State's website.

Important notes about passport expiration dates:

  • The U.S. Department of State recommends your passport have at least six (6) months of validity beyond your actual travel date to avoid expensive and lengthy travel disruptions.  The normal rule for most countries is that they require you to have three (3) months from your actual travel date before your passport expires.
  • U.S. citizens traveling on passports that expire in fewer than six (6) months have increasingly been denied airline boarding or have been detained upon arrival in certain foreign destinations, including popular European travel destinations in the Schengen area.  
  • This is not a a new requirement, but it is only until recently that the requirement has been more strictly enforced.
  • For more information, check the U.S. Department of State's website.
