Default How do you get a passport???

I need to get a passport to travel to Mexico later on this year. Where do you normally go to apply for one? How long does it normally take? I am an adult, U.S. citizen who lives in Missouri.

You need to go through the passport office which is located at your main post office. It takes a good 3 months to get it back to you. You'll need a certified birth certificate and 2 passport pictures. They can take them there or you can go to a local place to have them done.

Here is the US gov link

Passports are issued by the US Passport Office which is a part of the US State Department. The Passport office has a web site which provides all of the information that you need and you can also download and print a copy of the passport application.

The passport cost about $100 and is good for 10 years. It takes about 4 to 6 weeks to get your passport. You will need to complete the application, get two passport photos (from AAA or a travel agency, or try Wal-Mart) and submit all of the information along with your birth certificate to the passport office. You can also turn in your application at some post offices but there is no real benefit to doing that vs sending it directly to the passport office.

Here's the passport office's web site:
