Acceptance Facility

Updated: Jun 14, 2022

An acceptance facility is a location where you can submit your passport application for processing. There are over 9,000 passport acceptance facilities located throughout the United States, and they're typically found at post offices, libraries, and courthouses.

They are the first point of contact for applicants, and they play an important role in ensuring that passports are issued correctly. The Acceptance Facility will review your application to make sure that all of the required information is present and correct. They will also take your biometric information, which is used to create your passport. Once your application has been reviewed and accepted, it will be forwarded to the Passport Issuing Facility for processing. If you have any questions about your passport application, or if you need help with the process, the Acceptance Facility can provide assistance.
