The UCSB Recreation Customer Service Center is an authorized U.S. Government Passport Acceptance Facility. You can avoid the hassles and long lines at the Post Office by making an appointment with us. We offer all the necessary forms, and expedited service, accept your completed passport application, and forward it to the U.S. Department of State for an issuance determination. Only the Department of State can make an issuance determination, we cannot. Services are available by completing all necessary forms and bringing required verifications and payments. We do not service DS-82 renewals, only DS-11 applicants. 

Adhere to all requirements on checklist. See below requirements on checklist that apply to you.
