  • A DOCUMENT ESTABLISHING CITIZENSHIP Most common of which is an Original State Certified Copy of your birth certificate. A state certified copy is usually on colored paper and reads, “State Health Department” or “State Division of Vital Records.” The certificate must include: Applicant’s Name, Date & Place of Birth, Name of the Parents, Date the Birth was Recorded (File Date), & the Signature & Seal of the Registrar. If the birth certificate in your possession is not state certified, you will need to order one from the state in which you were born. Order forms, web addresses & phone numbers are available from the Umatilla County Records Office. It may take 3 to 5 weeks to obtain a certified copy from the issuing state, so it is important to order right away or ask to expedite the order. You may use a Certificate of Naturalization, Certificate of Citizenship, Report of a Birth Abroad or previously issued US Passport in place of a state certified copy of a birth certificate. Hospital Birth Certificates, US Census Certificates, US Birth Registrations and most Birth Record Abstracts are not acceptable. (To establish parental or custodial relationship, an applicant 15 years of age or younger renewing their passport, must also submit a State Certified Copy of their Birth Certificate together with the previously issued US Passport.) Applicants must also submit a plain photocopy of the document establishing citizenship unless using a previous US Passport.
  • ONE FACE-FRONT PHOTOGRAPH (2" x 2", Color only with a white background), in which eyes are clearly shown. (No glasses whatsoever, bows, hats or any type of uniform). The County Records Office takes passport photos for $13.00
  • VALID PHOTO ID Present a valid Driver’s License or other valid Government issued photo ID with your signature on it & submit a photocopy of the ID as well.
  • PLAIN PHOTOCOPY OF DOCUMENT ESTABLISHING CITIZENSHIP
    Applicants submitting anything other than a previously issued US Passport as proof of citizenship must also submit a photocopy of the same original document.
    The County Records Office will charge 25 cents a page to photocopy your ID & Proof of Citizenship for you if you do not provide your own copies at the time of application.
    Children 15 years of age and younger need both parents or legal guardian(s) to appear and sign the application. A Single Parent/Legal Guardian(s) with full Custody needs Court Certified Documentation to submit with each child’s application.
