Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Kirkland Passport Office will be closed until the State implements Phase 3 of its re-opening plan. The City’s re-opening of the passport office will depend on the status of the COVID-19 virus and its impact on our community.

To locate other passport facilities, or for additional passport information, you may contact the U.S. State Dept. at 1-877-487-2778, or visit their website at

The City of Kirkland is a Passport Acceptance Facility, allowing us to assist with applications for a US passport.  By US regulation, only federal, state or local government officials may serve as passport acceptance agents. Acceptance agents receive applications from the public and review them to ensure all necessary information and citizenship evidence is included. They administer the required oath and witness the applicants' signatures, then forward the applications to the Passport Services Agency (US Dept. of State) for issuance. Acceptance facilities also provide the public with general information on passport procedures and serve as a liaison between applicants and Passport Services Agencies.

The actual decision to issue or deny a passport is made only by a Passport Services Agency, not the City of Kirkland. To check on the status of a submitted passport, please call
