The Chambers County District Clerk’s office is a designated Passport Acceptance Agency.

In addition, an execution fee of $25.00 per person payable to Chambers County by any means.
If you were born in Chambers County and you do not have your birth certificate you can purchase one down stairs in the County Clerk’s office. The courthouse is a one stop shop!
We take passport applications Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1:00pm to 4:00 p.m. in the Chambers County Courthouse. Services are also offered in the West Annex by appointment, call 409-267-2604. Please no hats, shirts with logos, or white shirts allowed for the passport photo.
Purchase either a passport book or a card. I recommend you purchase both. It is good to keep the book in the safe of your cruise ship or hotel when leaving the country. You carry your card with you for proof of citizenship. That way, if your wallet or purse is stolen you still have your book to get back into the country. If you take a cruise and you have an emergency and have to fly back, you cannot fly without the book.
