PASSPORT SERVICES RESUME BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

Effective Tuesday, September 8, 2020, the Hidalgo County District Clerk’s Office will resume passport services by appointment only. The district clerk office temporarily suspended passport services back in March in an effort to limit non-essential services at the courthouse amid growing concerns of COVID-19.

Appointments will be scheduled Monday through Friday, from 9am to 2:30pm only. Applicants for a U.S. Passport can schedule their appointments online at:

WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT TAKING APPOINTMENTS FOR RENEWAL APPLICATIONS. IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO RENEW YOUR PASSPORT (SEE FORM DS-82 FOR ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS), PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE RENEWAL APPLICATION AND MAIL IT TO THE REFERENCED ADDRESS FOR PROCESSING.

Applicants must bring all required documentation and their completed and printed application, which can be downloaded from the US Department of State website at:

US DEPARTMENT OF STATE - CONSULAR/PASSPORT DIVISION

Applicants are advised, as per the US Department of State, unless an individual has a life-or-death emergency, applicants will experience delays before receiving their passport and the return of their citizenship documents. Expedited service has also been temporarily suspended due to the significantly reduced passport operations that were implemented as a result of the pandemic.

2. Original birth certificate (long form)
3. Valid driver's license or government ID
