Passport Info

Plan your visit to the Town of Gypsum for a Passport.

The Town of Gypsum, located at 50 Lundgren Blvd., (right off of Valley Road) between the Gypsum Recreation Center and Gypsum Library, offers passport processing services. 

The hours of this service are 9 am to 2:30 pm, Monday through Friday.  Please note:  Passport application(s) must be completed in full to be processed.  We are closed most major holidays and will not be processing passport applications the working day before a holiday.  We can take your passport picture for a charge of $10.00.  If getting a photo for an infant, it is suggested to dress the infant in dark colors for the photo.

These are guidelines only for obtaining a passport.  If you have specific questions or need more information, please call Lily Ludewig at (970) 524-1752, email lludewig@townofgypsum.com or visit Travel.State.Gov.
