Passports

Please Note: 

  • Proof of Identification:    It is now required that all Applicants 16 years and older must present a clear photocopy ( front & back) of  their valid government-issued identification (example: driver’s license/school ID card) along with that original photo identification.
  • The U.S. Department of State requires the full names of the applicant’s parent(s) to be listed on all certified birth certificates to be considered as primary evidence of U.S. citizenship for all passport applicants, regardless of age.  Certified birth certificates missing this information will not be acceptable as evidence of citizenship. 

For more information, please go to travel.state.gov

The Prothonotary serves as an agent for the Federal Government for the purpose of processing Passport applications. Passports take about 4 to 6 weeks for processing by mail. (Expedited service is available.)
