The Auditor/Treasurer's Office is a Passport Acceptance Facility for new passports, passports that expired more than fifteen (15) years ago, were issued to a minor, or passports that have been lost, stolen or damaged. We are available to process passport applications from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm, Monday thru Friday. We do not actually create the passports in our office, but accept applications, supporting documents, fees etc. to be sent to the Passport Processing Facility.
Applications must be fully processed by 3:30 and take approximately 15 minutes per application to process.
Applications are processed on a first come first served basis.
If you are coming in as a group please plan appropriately for time allowed.
Based on instruction provided from the Federal Passport Agency, when processing passports for minors, only one agent can process all applications for the minors in that family and can only process one application at a time. Both Parents are required to complete the application with the minor child so please make accommodations for your other minor children to be supervised while we are processing the applications.
There are two products available for a passport:
U.S. Passport Book: This is the most common type of passport requested. The U.S. passport book is used to enter the United States from any international land border crossing, sea ports-of-entry and travel by air. The book is valid for ten (10) years for ages 16 and older, five (5) years for minors under 16 years of age.
U.S. Passport Card: The U.S. passport card is used to enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, the Carribean, and Bermuda at land border crossings or sea ports-of-entry. The passport card cannot be used for international travel by air. The card is smaller and less expensive than a passport book. The card is valid for ten (10) years for ages 16 and older, five (5) years for minors under 16 years of age.
Bring passport photos with you if you had them taken elsewhere. We can also take passport photos here if you wish.
A few suggestions to follow so as to avoid having your photo rejected by the Department of State:
No Camoflage clothing
Wear your hair down
