Passport Information
 

Please call the recorders office at 546-4020 to make an appointment when applying for a passport.


In order to obtain passports more quickly, some of our customers have been using websites.  One that has been recommended is:

www.traveldocs.com


If you would like information regarding the passport book or the passport card or to download a passport application, please visit:

http://travel.state.gov

Of course, our office will be glad to assist you in completing the necessary paperwork in obtaining your passport book or card.

 If you are under the age of 16, the cost of a passport book is $105, and is good for 5 years.  If you are 16 years of age or over, the total cost is $135 and is good for 10 years.  Exceptions to expiration dates would be where they are limited by the Secretary of State to a shorter period.

The Passport Acceptance Agents' National Service Commitment states:  Customers will receive their passports within 6 weeks from the receipt of complete applications by Passport Agencies.  Those customers who wish to receive their passports sooner may request expedited service, which will take about two weeks.  The use of two-way overnight delivery is highly recommended for all expedite requests, and only one passport can be returned in each envelope.
