Visa/Immigration FAQ

How do I obtain or renew my Passport?

For information on passports and passport renewal, please visit (US citizens) or (for all non-US citizens). Please also contact if you have any questions about obtaining a passport, and, if you need a passport quickly, for a letter needed to request same day passport service (available only for US citizens).  Additionally, the Office of Global Services will host a Passport Drive on October 14 from 10am-2pm at 383 Lafayette Street.  Click here to register for an appointment.

Remember, your passport MUST be valid for 6 months beyond your return date. For Spring 2017, that means through November 2017.
