United States Passports

A U.S. passport is your key to international travel. When presented abroad, it is a request to foreign governments to permit you to travel or temporarily reside in their territories and access all lawful, local aid and protection. It allows you access to U.S. Consular services and assistance while abroad. Most importantly, it allows you to re-enter the United States upon your return home.

The Department of State’s Passport Services Directorate issues U.S. passports to traveling Americans. More than 9,100 public offices across the United States called Passport Application Acceptance Facilities are designated to accept passport applications. The Stephens County Clerk of Court’s office and the US Post Office in Toccoa can advise you on how to obtain or renew a passport.
