Passport Acceptance

Iola Public Library is a Passport Acceptance Facility for the U.S. Department of State.  To apply, you can either bring in your application or fill one out here.  You will need to bring all necessary documents and other items. You will pay your fees here and take the required oath.

The exact items you need to bring will vary somewhat depending on such things as whether the applicant is a minor and other factors, but in general you will need:

    • Proof of citizenship (usually birth certificate or certificate of naturalization)

    • Photograph meeting State Department requirements (the library does not take passport photographs)

    • Photo identification

    • Checks or money orders to pay fees

The application fee and additional services fees must be paid by check or money order.  The execution fee can be paid by check, money order, cash, or credit card.
