Passport Application Acceptance Services


To protect your health and safety, the County of San Diego's Passport Acceptance Services are suspended until further notice. Once the Clerk of the Board's passport services reopens to the public, you will be able to schedule an appointment on this site.

If you have urgent travel plans and need immediate assistance obtaining a passport, please visit the U.S. Department of State's website for more information.
