Currently, most passports cost $100 for adults and $85 for children 15 years of age and younger. To help the passport application process run smoothly and efficiently, the Postal Service recommends the following:

  • Bring in proper proof of American citizenship. This must be either: a certified birth certificate issued by the city, county or state; a previous U.S. passport; a certificate of citizenship; or a naturalization certificate. (Please note: a hospital-issued birth certificate alone is not acceptable.)

  • Bring in proof of identity. This must be either: a previous U.S. passport; a naturalization certificate; a certificate of citizenship; a current valid driver's license, government ID or military photo ID.

  • The passport application requires two identical color photographs of you, which are available at the Post Office for $15.

For additional information, please contact Blowing Rock PO, (828) 295-3589.
