Morris County Clerk Joan Bramhall is hosting a Passport Fair in the County Clerk's Office on Saturday, March 27, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. to provide passport information to U.S. citizens and to accept passport applications.
Bramhall said the Passport Fair is part of the Department of State's celebration of Passport Day in the USA, a national passport acceptance and outreach event taking place across the country.
Any Morris County resident coming to the clerk's office that day must bring with them proof of citizenship, including a birth certificate with a raised seal of the town or state of birth, or naturalization papers; two identical passport photos; and proof of identification, such as a valid driver's license. Passport fees established by the U.S. Department of State's Passport Division are $75.00 for an adult plus a $25 processing fee, and $60 for children ages 15 and under plus a $25 processing fee. All fees are payable with two checks. Significant changes in passport laws now require a passport for all air, sea, land or border crossings to or from the United States, Bramhall said.
She warned customers planning to travel to allow at least several weeks to receive their passports.
