The Cowlitz County District Court is an official Passport Acceptance Agent.
Acceptance agents receive applications from the public and review them to ensure all necessary information and citizenship evidence is included. They administer the required oath and witness the applicants' signatures, then forward the applications to the Passport Services Agency (US Department of State) for issuance. As an acceptance agency, we also provide the public with general information on passport procedures and serve as a liaison between applicants and Passport Services Agencies. The actual decision to issue or deny a passport is made only by a Passport Acceptance Agency, not Cowlitz County .
Applications may be downloaded from The U.S. Department of State or may be picked up at the Cowlitz County District Court office at 312 SW 1st Avenue Room 207, Kelso , WA 98626
