Passport Program

Customers have the option to apply for a Passport Book, a Passport Card or Both.  The Passport Card may only be used for land and sea travel between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, and the Caribbean.  The Passport Card is a less expensive, smaller, and more convenient alternative for those who travel to these destinations by land or sea.

You may walk-in to the Town Clerk's Office Monday-Thursday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. to apply for a passport.  Appointments are available after 12:00 p.m. and on alternating Friday's.

Extended Passport Hours

Need to apply for a Passport after hours?  Not a problem.  The Town Clerk's Office is offering extended hours for Passport processing the 3rd Thursday of each month up to 7:00 p.m!  Please call to schedule an after hour appointment at (760) 240-7000, ext. 7800.
