The UMD International Programs & Services department is excited to announce the opening of an official U.S. Passport Acceptance Facility on the UMD campus! It will be open to the campus community and the general public starting November 18, 2019. U.S. citizens can apply for a passport and have an official passport and visa photo taken in one stop at the UMD facility. Students who present a valid student I.D. will also receive a photo discount. 
Services are available at the new facility by appointment only; call 218-726-8764 or email to schedule. The facility is located in the International Programs and Services office at 138 Kirby Plaza. Passports typically take 6–8 weeks to process.

Appointments will begin during International Education Week which takes place November 18–22, 2019. Grand opening events and informational tables will be in Kirby Commons, across from the lower level bookstore on November 18 from 12–2 p.m. and on November 21 from 11–1 p.m. Those who stop by the grand opening events will have an opportunity to enter their name in a drawing to have part of their fees waived and photos taken for free!

“International Programs and Services is delighted to open our new passport facility to members of the UMD campus and community. Our mission is to increase global engagement, and this facility helps us support the international mobility of students, faculty, and staff by creating an easily accessible way to get a passport and begin a journey toward becoming a global citizen.” —Karl Markgraf, UMD Chief International Officer, Director of International Programs & Services, and Head of the Passport Facility.
