Passports

This Clerk’s General Division is an authorized U.S. Department of State (DOS) Passport Acceptance Agent. Additionally, our passport photo service turns the Clerk of Courts into a One-Stop-Passport-Shop. An expert Deputy Clerk reviews the completed application, takes the passport photo, and forwards all documents and payments to the U.S. Department of State.

Fees for the passports/cards are separate from the service/photo fees for the Clerk of Courts. A check or money order is required for the passports/cards fee. The Clerk of Courts on-site photo fees and service fees can be paid by check, MasterCard, Visa, or cash. No appointment is required.
