New Passport

If you are a United States citizen and do not yet possess a United States Passport Book or Passport Card, you may now apply for your new passport through The University of Georgia's Passport Services. 

The U.S. Passport book is a globally accepted travel document regardless of mode of travel. 

The U.S. Passport Card is a wallet-size card that can only be used for land and sea travel between the United States, Mexico, Canada, Bermuda, and the Caribbean
