There are two different types of passports–a book and a card.
To travel internationally by air, you must apply for a passport book.
To cross land borders or ports-of-entry by sea from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda, you can apply for a passport book or card.
Please note there are TWO SEPARATE FEES for passport application. You will need to submit a separate payment for each fee.
- Execution fee: due per application and payable to Mid-Continent Public Library
- Passport fee: Payable to U.S. Department of State
Please note that passport execution fees are non-refundable, and the Mid-Continent Public Library is not liable for any missed travel.
* A passport card is a wallet-size travel document that can only be used to re-enter the United States at land border-crossings or ports-of-entry by sea from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda. The card provides a smaller, more convenient, and less expensive alternative to the passport book for those who travel frequently to these destinations by land or sea. Get more information.
