Passports

The City Clerk’s Office at the Civic Center accepts Passport Applications from 9:00am to 3:00pm, Monday through Friday. 

A passport book is valid for land, air and sea travel.  The passport card is only valid for land and sea travel between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean region, and Bermuda.

Passport Renewals do not require making a personal appearance before an Acceptance Agent; therefore, we do not accept Passport Renewal Applications ( Form DS-82) at this office.

Please Note: Children under age 16 will be able to continue crossing land and sea borders using only a U.S. birth certificate (or other form of U.S. citizenship such as a naturalization certificate.). The original birth certificate or a copy may be used.
