MASK RECOMMENDED AND APPOINTMENTS REQUIRED

To help prevent the spread of Covid Murray City Passport and help keep our office open, we are recommending applicants wear a mask during their scheduled appointment.  

UPDATE: As of May 2, Murray City Passport Office is accepting 2 walk-ins per day between 9 am and 10:30 am only. Walk-in appointments will be processed after all scheduled appointments and you may have to wait for an opening.  It is highly recommended that you schedule an appointment before arriving. Please click "request an appointment" to see our next available opening.  

APPLICATION 

Please arrive early for your appointment & have your passport application filled out in BLACK ink or typed.

NEW IMPORTANT: If an applicant makes an error on the DS-11, they MUST complete a new DS-11 form.  Corrections made with white-out, crossing out the incorrect information, writing the correction on top of the error, etc., are NOT acceptable.

Common mistakes: 

  • Page 2- Section 10 - Parental Information
    • When entering in Mother's LAST Name, it's asking for her name at birth (maiden name).
  • Page 2- Section 21 - Previous Passport
    • If you bring in your passport to the appointment, please mark "Submitting with application" not "In my possession".  The best practice is to send in your expired passport with your new application. You will get your old passport back.
