In order to maintain security when applying for a U.S. Passport, all passport applicants are required to show up in person at their local passport acceptance agent. These agents are located at Post Offices and County Clerk’s Offices across the country. Search for your acceptance agent here:


Acceptance Agents are found in local Post Offices and Court Houses. (not every
Post Office or Court House is an Acceptance Agent) Most acceptance facilities are
9:00am – 4:00pm. We urge you to call your local Acceptance Agent to verify
their hours of operation. Click Here to search by zip code for the nearest agent.

Do NOT sign the DS-11 until instructed to do so by the Acceptance Agent. You
will sign the application after the Acceptance Agent verifies your identity and
approves your application.

Tell the Acceptance Agent that a courier service will hand carry the materials’
to the Passport Agency. This Department of State policy is called
‘Hand carrying of Executed Documents’. The policy is detailed on
pages 31 and 44 of the Acceptance Agent Manual.

The Acceptance Agent will check your proof of identity, endorse the documents
and seal them in an envelope marked ‘To be opened by authorized passport
officials only’. Do NOT open the envelope after it is sealed.

Some Acceptance Agents will seal one of our Authorization Letters in the envelope.
In this case, you MUST also attach one copy with an original signature to the envelope.

Print your name, birth date, departure and date on the outside of the sealed envelope.

  1. For those traveling with minors, if you are the custodial parent you only need the birth certificate or tribal ID card. If you are not the custodial parent (other relative/friend), you must have a signed, notarized statement from the custodial parent giving temporary custody for the designated period away with permission to provide medical treatment. The permission to provide medical treatment is VERY IMPORTANT.

  2. What documentation are required to enter the USA by sea and what is required for minors that will be travelling with the group to Tribal Journeys 2009. We are looking forward to attending this event. It will be our first journey to the States. Also what type of materials are able to travel across the border – IE cedar bark, dried fish, eagle feathers and jarred fish and jams? Are there certain rules we should be aware of. Thank you for your assistance.
