Welcome to the Dallas County, District Clerk Passport website!

Our team of certified passport Agents are here to serve you and provide required information to apply for a U.S passport. The Dallas County, District Clerk’s office has three locations ready to review walk-in applications throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and is hoping to expand to South Dallas as well. To help serve the County’s growing Hispanic population, each office has Spanish-speaking deputies on staff to assist Spanish-speaking customers.


 

IMPORTANT:
State Department Issues New Requirements for Proof of Citizenship:

A photo copy of your proof of citizenship will now be required by the State Department, in addition to the actual original proof of citizenship itself. If the proof of citizenship has print on the backside, which they normally do not, the acceptance agent will need a copy of the back side as well. This requirement does not apply if using a expired passport as your proof of citizenship.
