Recording & Citizen Information Center

Larimer County is a Passport Acceptance Facility!

Passports

The convenience of submitting your passport application is available at the Larimer County Citizen Information Center located in the Courthouse Administrative Offices at 200 West Oak Street in Fort Collins. We are designated as a Passport Acceptance Facility. All necessary forms are available, and our trained staff can answer your questions. We offer photo services for U.S. passports or visa photos.

Passport Books

A United States passport book is an identity and citizenship document allowing United States citizens to travel internationally and return stateside. It may be used by U.S. citizens to travel by any means to any international travel destination.

Passport Cards

The passport card may only be used by U.S. citizens to re-enter the United States at land border-crossings and sea ports-of-call when arriving from Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, and Bermuda. It cannot be used for air travel to any of these destinations or for other international destinations.
