Passport Applications


Applications for both card and/or book are available in the County Clerk's Office. You may pick it up, complete it, and then bring it back for execution. Renewal passport applications are also available in our office. These are completed on your own and mailed directly to the agency by yourself. 


The passport card is the wallet-size travel document that can only be used to re-enter the United States at land border-crossings and sea ports-of-entry from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda. The card provides a less expensive, smaller, and convenient alternative to the passport book for those who travel frequently to these destinations by land or by sea. The passport card cannot be used for international travel by air.
