Passports

The Town Clerk's Office is a Passport Acceptance Facility.  Passport photo services are available for a fee of $10.00.  We accept applications until 4:00pm, Monday-Friday.  You do not need an appointment.  Passport Forms are available in our office or they can be downloaded.

It is currently taking 6-8 weeks to receive your passport.  If you need your passport sooner, it is recommended to use exedited service.  If you need it within 14 days, call 1-877-487-2778 to make an appointment at a Regional Passport Agency.
