Please note: Passports are not accepted on Mondays or Fridays. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the last passport application is accepted at 3:45 pm.

Please keep in mind that changes to Federal ID requirements have caused an increase in the number of passports our office is processing. Currently, afternoons (2:00 pm to 4:00 pm) tend to be the busiest time for us so there may be a line. Your ability to be well prepared will expedite the process for you.
