What is a passport card and how can one be obtained?

A passport card requires the same application and processing times as a passport, but can only be used to travel by land and sea. To fly, one must obtain a passport. Passport cards are $30 for an adult and $15 for a child, plus a separate $25 processing fee made payable to the city of Roseville.

What is the passport process for minors?

For minors aged 16 or 17, one parent is required to appear in person and countersign the application.

For minors under 16, two parents are required to accompany and countersign the application. If one parent cannot be present, a notarized signed affidavit and a photocopy of the driver's license must be provided by the absent parent. An original court document stating sole custody or a certified copy of a death certificate of a deceased parent can also be provided. A certified birth certificate for all minors under 16 must also be provided (no exceptions).

How long does it take to receive the passport?

It takes four to six weeks for your passport to be delivered. You may expedite your passport or passport card for additional fees.

For those who are travelling within two weeks, an application along with proof of departure time (itinerary or tickets purchased) must be presented in person at the San Francisco Passport Agency. To schedule an appointment, call (877) 487-2778.
