Passport Information

Planning a Trip out of the USA?
The first thing you will need to do is to apply for a passport, or check the date on your current passport to ensure it hasn’t expired.

The City of Gahanna Council Office is authorized by the U.S. Department of State to provide and process passport applications.

You must have a current passport to re-enter the United States if you travel by land or sea from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean region and Bermuda. 

If you are traveling within 14 days you must call 1-877-487-2778 to schedule an appointment with a regional acceptance agency.
