Passports

The Radford Public Library is a passport acceptance facility.  Passport applications are handled by appointment only, and must be scheduled at least 24 hours before-hand.  Please call (540) 731-3621 and ask for Claire to schedule your appointment.

Appointment hours are:

Passport photos

Passport photos are not taken at the library.  You can get passport photos taken at CVS, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, or FedEx.  There is a CVS conveniently located across the street from the library.  Wherever they are taken, passport photos must meet the requirements set out by the State Department.

What Do I Need?

You will need to bring a completed (but not signed!) DS-11 form.  These can be printed from the State Department's web-page, or you can pick one up at the Radford Public Library.

We will discuss the other documents you need to bring with you in great detail when you call to schedule your appointment, but we also recommend reading this list of requirements provided by the State Department to ensure that you have everything you will need for your passport application.

Payment

You will need two forms of payment for your passport application.

  1. The $25 execution fee can be paid by cash, or by check made out to "Radford Public Library" (this fee may vary if you choose to ship your application via overnight delivery).
  2. Each application must be accompanied by check or money order made out to "U.S. Department of State" for the amount of the application fee.  This fee depends on the contents of the application!
