PATERSON, NJ – Kristin M. Corrado, Esq., Passaic County Clerk, will be hosting a special event on April 22.
Passaic County Passport Day, “2017 Spring Into Summer,” will be held on Saturday, April 22. The County Clerk’s Office will be processing passport applications from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at her offices located at 401 Grand St., Room 130, Paterson, and at the Satellite Office located at 1237 Ringwood Ave., Haskell (Wanaque). A passport photo will be provided for free with payment of all application fees as part of this outreach event.
“We’re just trying to save you from that moment of panic that’s increasingly common among travelers. That moment when you’re packing for a trip and you realize that your passport has expired or that you have fewer than six months before your passport expires,” said Corrado. “Residents who don’t have a U.S. passport should consider applying for their passport now. You never know when you may have to travel on short notice. If your passport is expiring within six months, renew it now. Renewals this year are expected to take about six weeks.”
The full names of the applicant’s parent(s) must be listed on all certified birth certificates to be considered as primary evidence of U.S. citizenship for all passport applicants, regardless of age. Certified birth certificates missing this information will not be acceptable as evidence of citizenship.
