The Douglas County Recording office is a passport acceptance facility only; we do not print passports and cannot accept renewals.

Are any of the applicants minors? Children under the age of 16 are not eligible to renew their passport, even if they have had one before.

Other items needed to process your passport application include:  photograph of the applicant, proof of citizenship, proof of parental relationship (if the applicant is 16 or under), photo identification  and at least one check or money order payable to the U.S. Department of State per application/  Fees payable to Douglas County may be paid by cash, check or credit card.

Douglas County offers passport photography services on site for a fee of $8.

Costs vary based on whether the applicant needs a passport book, passport card or both and any additional services if requested.
