Passports and Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL)
US Passports and Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL)
US Passports 

Effective June 1, 2009 a passport is required for all U.S. citizens who travel outside the United States. The Wixom City Clerk’s Office accepts U.S. passport applications as an added service to the community and participates in the Passport Application Acceptance Program to assist United States Citizens intent on international travel and to protect the integrity of the U.S. passport as proof of U.S. citizenship.

Hours of Acceptance

The Clerk’s Office accepts passport applications Monday through Thursday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  Applicants who cannot apply during those hours are required to call ahead and schedule an appointment.

Items Required and Fees when Applying in Person at the City Clerk's Office

Individuals who wish to apply for a passport must present original documentation of citizenship, such as a previous U.S. passport, certified birth certificate, naturalization certificate, certificate of citizenship, or a report of birth abroad. Proof of identification is also required, such as a valid driver’s license, passport, naturalization or citizenship certificate, or official military identification card with photo.

Passport Application:
 Click link to complete and print an application or an application form may be obtained from the Clerk's Office.

Photos: One photo (2" x 2" in size) of your head and shoulders is required when applying for your passport. Passport photos may be taken at the Clerk’s Office for an additional $12.00 charge or may be obtained from your local drug store, the UPS Store or AAA (for members). The photos should be clear, front view, full face of the applicant. The applicant should be in normal street attire, without hat or dark sunglasses, against a plain white or off-white background. The applicant should have a natural expression with mouth closed and eyes open and looking directly ahead. Photos in which the face of the applicant is not in focus will not be accepted.

Proof of Citizenship and Photo Identification: You must provide an original birth certificate or naturalization form (no photocopies). This document is required to be sent with your application; however, all original documents will be returned to you. The acceptance agent also needs to see a valid driver’s license or state- issued identification card.

Two Parent Consent Age Change: Since February 1, 2008, the consent of both parents is required for all minors under the age of 16 (formerly the age of 14). When both parents cannot be present at the time of application for the child’s passport the use of form DS-3053 (Statement of Consent or Special Circumstances) is required. Along with form DS-3053 (Statement of Consent or Special Circumstances) the absent parent/guardian will need to submit a copy of their “valid” driver’s license both front and back. Copies should be clear and legible and double sided copies are not acceptable.

The Passport Card: is only valid for land and sea travel between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean region and Bermuda. The passport card will provide a less expensive, smaller and more convenient alternative for those who travel to these destinations.

Fees: When you come to apply you need to bring with you two checks or money orders to cover fees since we do not accept credit cards and cannot send cash through the mail with your application. (See fee chart below for current rates.)
