The State Department has issued a passport card – a wallet-size card that can be used only for land and sea travel between the United States and Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda. The card is a less expensive, smaller and more convenient alternative to the conventional passport book.
As a U.S. Department of State Passport Acceptance Facility, the City of Oakley offers convenient, one-stop service for your passport needs, including photos. Passport application processing hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Civic Center, 3231 Main St. Appointments are required; call 925-625-7000.
Customers submitting routine applications should receive their passports within six weeks, provided that all documentation is complete. Expedited service, which requires an additional fee, assures receipt of a passport within two weeks. Those requiring a passport within 14 days must visit the San Francisco Passport Agency.
