About the Passport Acceptance Facility
Located conveniently at UT Tyler, our full service Passport Acceptance Facility has served the East Texas community since October 2015. We are authorized by the U.S. Department of State to execute and mail-in only DS-11 form passport applications, and can provide guidance for those using other application forms or needing photos for other passport applications, visa applications, or international students on OPT.
We are open to the public and happily serve our students, Faculty and staff, East Texas community, state, and surrounding-state citizens.
