How to get a certified copy of your passport?

First Option:  

Across the United States, 28 states (plus the District of Columbia) allow for some form of notary certification (or attestation*) of copies of documents. According to the U.S. Department of State Foreign Affairs (“USDOSFA”) the following U.S. states allow for varying types of notary copy certification: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. (*At least one state [Florida] allows for notaries to “attest” to copies of documents therefore, for the purpose of this article, attestation and certification shall be used interchangeably.)

States which do allow notaries to certify copies most often do not allow notaries to attest or certify copies of documents recordable in the public record and say that the notarizing officer should direct the inquirer to the custodian of records in that state or other jurisdiction.

In general, certified copies of U.S. passports can be made through the U.S. State Department Passport Services. In order to obtain a true and correct copy of their passport, the person needs to contact passport services. The official Passport Services website states that all passport records issued after 1925 are archived.

Individuals can also submit a written request to the State Department and submit a certification fee in order to obtain a certified passport copy. Passport copy certifications are most commonly done by attorneys, notaries public in a courthouse, or bank employees. Fees charged for such a certification vary, however, a notary public tends to charge a nominal fee for the service, whilst an attorney typically charges higher.

Second Option: for Passport or ID copy certification process

A notary public (or other certified individual) compares the copy to the original document, and attaches a notarial certificate stating that the copy is the same as the original. 

Therefore, in some states, you might be able to just bring a copy of your document(s) to a notary along with the original and have the notary certify them upon comparing both and determining their authenticity.
