Groups may apply
locally for passports

Groups of Middlesex County residents seeking to apply for U.S. passports may now do so locally.

The Middlesex County Clerk’s Office will arrange to send a representative to communities, schools, clubhouses or other meeting rooms to begin the passport application process for groups of 20 or more.

Daytime appointments are available.

Applicants must complete an application and provide two identical 2-by-2-inch photos; proof of U.S. citizenship, such as a certified birth certificate from the Bureau of Vital Statistics with a raised seal and file date, a previous passport or an original naturalization certificate; and identification, such as a valid driver’s license, valid photo student identification or valid employment identification from a major company.

All applicants, including children, must appear in person. Both parents must be present if their child is under age 14.

The clerk’s office will accept the application and photos and send them to Philadelphia for processing.

Normal processing time is 25 business days.

Only checks or money orders will be accepted for passport fees.

For more information or to schedule a passport application visit, call Linda Dashuta at (732) 745-5723.
