U.S. Passport

The Office of International Engagement, located in Student Center 124, at TAMIU serves as a passport facility where U.S. citizens can submit a passport application form to obtain a new passport. If you will be traveling abroad, you must obtain a U.S. Passport before you depart the US. We highly recommend you apply well in advance as it may take up to 12 weeks to receive your passport due to COVID-19 delays.
