*UPDATE* Passport Services:
We have resumed passport services for regular routine service applications by appointment only. While you can still apply in person for a U.S. passport and renew through the mail, the Department of State’s application processing, receipt of your passport, and return of citizenship evidence documents is significantly delayed beyond the normal turnaround time of 6-8 weeks for routine service. Expedited passports are being accepted by the Department of State with a 4-6 week turnaound time for service.
After making your appointment with our office, a Deputy Clerk will contact you prior to your appointment to review the application process, including required citizenship documentation and the forms to complete on line before coming into our office. Photos will be taken, while maintaining physical distancing (6-10ft) as required by the CDC. If your family has more than 5 members, additional considerations will have to be made in scheduling your appointment to comply with CDC regulations.
