(1)  This payment goes to the U.S. State Dept. and must be by check or money order as we can not send cash and do not take credit cards.  For multiple applications submitted at the same time:  Each one must have its own check for the U.S. State Dept.; these fees can not be combined.

(2)  The $25 per application execution fee paid to our office (Pierce County Clerk) may be combined for multiple family members and may be cash, check, or money order.

FEES FOR EXPEDITED PROCESSING:   Additional $ 60  for each application using regular mail service (approximately 3 weeks processing time). To ensure receipt of the passport within 2-3 weeks, the expedited fee would be $ 85.45 which includes $25.45 for Express Mail postage. Express Mail return service for Passport Books ONLY.

Forms: You may obtain passport forms from our office or this website:  http://travel.state.gov

It’s easiest for the scanning machines to read applications that have been completed by computer from the above website, but if you must complete it by hand:

*  Use permanent black ink pen.  Take time to PRINT VERY NEATLY using ALL CAPITAL letters.

*   In all date spaces:  there should be 1 digit in each box with no dashes or empty spaces.  Example: if your date of birth is May 8, 1963 you would enter 05 08 1963,   NOT  5-8-63.

*    Use an “X” in check boxes.

*  No white-out or erasures are allowed.  If you make an error, try to correct your mistake as best you can or complete a new form.

*  We must witness your signature so do NOT sign the application until told to do so.

Please visit the Passport Website listed above for more detailed information about passports for children, renewals, name changes, visas, foreign country entry requirements, etc.

Our office is open Monday - Friday; 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.   We do however as that when applying for passport that you arrive no later than 4:00. It’s best that you come by in the morning if possible so we have time to process your application and get it sent out in the daily mail. No appointments are necessary.
