Passport Acceptance Agency
The Seward Community Library & Museum is a U.S. Passport Acceptance Agency, which allows us to accept US. passport applications under the guidelines of and on behalf of the United States Department of State.

You may be able to renew your passport.  Visit Renew a Passport by Mail or stop by for an application.

Due to the issues with the Alaska state identification cards and the Read ID Act, we are seeing a rise in U.S. Passport questions and requests for appointments.

Plan Ahead
Plan far in advance to your need. It is recommended that applications be submitted at least two months prior to need.  Be aware of the limited staff availability for appointments due to the many other duties that Library Museum staff are required to fulfill.

Schedule an Appointment
An appointment must be scheduled in order to process an application once all parts of the application have been fully prepared.

Call 907-224-4082 to review your application(s) for completeness and schedule an appointment.

Timeframe
Routine passports take 6 weeks to process. Expedited passports take approximately 2-3 weeks.
