EFFECTIVE JANUARY 20, 2022:
Effective January 22, 2022, we are temporarily suspending all Passport Services due to the significant rise in COVID cases.
As an alternative, most Post Offices process passport applications and some local pharmacies offer passport photo services.
We will resume services once it is safe for everyone. We apologize for the inconvenience.
If you have any questions, please call our office. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Please have applications (applications are linked below) completed if possible and bring the required documents. Please see application for acceptable/required documents, forms of payments, etc.
1. PROOF OF U.S. CITIZENSHIP: Applicants born in the United States: A previous U.S. passport or certified birth certificate
Birth certificates must include the full names of the applicant’s parent(s) and a raised seal. A hospital certificate is NOT an acceptable proof of birth.
2. PROOF OF IDENTITY: Most common is current/valid New York State drivers license. Additional documents may be required if valid NYS license is not available. Children under 16: will require parents with ID to be present.
The renewal of passports can be done by the applicant by completing a DS-82, submitting a new photo and payment, and mailing it at the Post Office (mail it trackable). We will take photos for renewals (photos are $15)
