As of May 1, 2011, the Register of Deeds office is now the Acceptance Agent for new Passport Applications. Passport photos can be taken at the Clerks office for a $10.00 fee and it only takes a few minutes. Forms are available from our office or they can be completed on-line and brought in to our office in order to save time. Expect to spend at least one-half hour in our office as we need to make sure that you have all the required documentation that is required to be submitted with the application. More information about passports and traveling abroad can be found at www.travel.state.gov. Passports take approximately 4-6 weeks to process.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE: The only form of payment the Department of State will accept for processing passports is a check. Please be sure to bring your checkbook with you. You will need one check for each passport application accepted. Children age 16 and older may use a parents check.
