Birth Certificate Information

Priority Passports & Visa Services guarantees you will receive your new .US passport by your departure date! When we receive your package, you will receive your passport back by your travel date, guaranteed!
Please follow these steps in order for Priority Passports & Visa Services to expedite your application for a US passport. You may print out this page for your convenience.
Consider this:
If you choose to use "normal" processing via the Post Office (i.e. not an expediting service like ours), the process will take up to 6 weeks.
To prove your U.S. citizenship, you must submit a certified birth certificate.
  • Official copies contain either a raised or color seal from the issuing authority (either the town, city, county or state governmental office issuing the document).
  • The birth certificate must include your given name and surname, date and place of birth, date the birth record was filed, and seal or other certification of the official custodian of such records.
  • Photocopied birth certificates, even when notarized, are UNACCEPTABLE.
  • Hospital birth certificates or birth records are UNACCEPTABLE.
  • Applicants born in California or Texas MUST submit a Long Form Birth Certificate; short forms or abstract birth certificates are UNACCEPTABLE.
  • All official copies of documents are returned with the new passports.
If you don't have a copy of your birth certificate, then contact VitalChek for options on getting your birth certificate quickly.

If no birth record exists, please contact us at 1-888-930-8889 for information on alternate forms of citizenship.
