Passport Processing

Passport forms are available in the Supervisor’s Office. The standard passport fee is $135.00 per Adult and $105.00 per Child under 16 years of age (paid by check only). Processing could take up to 6-8 weeks. Applicants must bring in proof of citizenship and have a proper ID. The standard proof of citizenship would be a Certified Copy of your birth certificate (raised seal of issuing agency) and the standard identification form being a driver’s license or State ID. Applicants with current or expired passports must submit their old passport for cancellation with their application for a new passport. Two duplicate passport photos 2 x 2 inches in size are required of the applicant along with an image size from the bottom of the chin to the top of the head (including hair) of between 1 and 1 3/8 inches. The photo must be recent, normally taken within six months, and of a good unretouched likeness of the individual showing a clear front view, full face, taken in street attire without headgear or dark glasses. Photographic paper, either in black/white or color with a plain white background is acceptable; Polaroid photos are NOT accepted. Photos are available from a wide variety of sources, price varying considerably. Check photographers listed in the yellow pages of the telephone directory.
