Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs continues to go that extra mile by teaming up with AAA of Western and Central New York to offer a “Passports on the Move” outreach event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, July 29th at the AAA Travel & Insurance Center located at 3475 Amelia Drive in Orchard Park.

“I encourage anyone scheduling their upcoming vacation or a college student planning a semester abroad to attend our outreach and apply for their passport,” said County Clerk Jacobs. “My office is pleased to host this outreach event with AAA in order to make obtaining a passport more convenient for all our customers,” Jacobs added.

Those who attend the outreach will be able to apply for a passport card and/or book and can expect to receive their passport in approximately 4-6 weeks.
