The Orange County Clerk-Recorder Department is a designated passport acceptance facility and is authorized to accept new passport applications on behalf of the U.S. Department of State.  This office does not handle passport renewal applications; you must submit them directly to the U.S. Department of State

Customers may apply for a passport book, passport card, or both. Passport books are valid for international and domestic flights,  and passport cards are accepted as ID for domestic flights and can be used when entering the United States at land-border crossings and seaports-of-entry from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda. 

Processing time at the U.S. Department of State varies and may be expedited for an additional $60. For the most up-to-date processing times, please visit: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/need-passport/status.html
