UNC Global Passport Drive

Each year, hundreds of Carolina community members obtain or renew a passport at the annual Passport Drive hosted by UNC Global.

Officials from the U.S. Department of State are on campus once a year to accept passport applications and renewal applications and to answer questions from Carolina students, faculty, staff and their families. Application forms are available at the event, or can be downloaded from the U.S. State Department website.

You can have passport photos taken at the event for $7 (cash or check only) by UNC One Card office staff, or before the event at the UNC One Card Office. You are encouraged to get your photos before the event to avoid waiting. As of November 1, 2016 Passport Services will no longer accept passport photos with eye glasses on. For additional requirements please review the photo requirements on the U.S. State Department website.

The 2018 passport drive will take place November 7 and 8 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m on the fourth floor of the FedEx Global Education Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Information about general passport requirements and procedures is available on the U.S. State Department website.
