Passports are required if you are traveling to any foreign country. Generally they are required if you are flying or traveling by ship; or in the case of Canada or Mexico, traveling by car. Passports for adults are good for 10 years. You can apply for them at your local main post office. In Springfield, MO that post office is located at 500 W Chestnut Expressway. Their phone number is (417) 864-0100. If you are applying for a passport for the first time, you must file in person.
To apply for the first time, you will need a completed passport application, birth certificate, passport picture and general family information. Passport pictures are available at many places, but we have found Walgreens, CVS and FedEx stores to be the most reasonably priced and expedient.
