Application Process

Texas Township is a Passport Processing Agency. We can assist you with processing your passport application form, taking your photo, and more. We process passports Monday through Thursday by appointment only. Please note that there are certain circumstances when our office is not accepting passport applications due to elections and tax collections. Appointments for new passports or photos can be scheduled online or by calling our office at 269-375-1591. Passport renewal does not need to be done at a Passport Acceptance Agency. View more information about passport renewal and feel free to contact our office if you have additional questions.

When applying for a passport, you have two passport options:

  1. Passport Card - Not valid for air travel. Only valid for land and sea crossings between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, and the Caribbean ONLY.
  2. Passport Book - Traditional passport-style valid for air, land, and sea crossings between the U.S. and all countries.

When Do Parents/Legal Guardians Need to Be Present?

Minor children must be present at the appointment. 

Please note that anyone under the age of 16 must have both parents/legal guardians present to sign for them.
