RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. To schedule your appointment, please call the Erie County Clerk's Office at 858-8866 and reserve your time today.

“The Clerk’s Office is pleased to make this service available in order to meet the growing demand for passports,” said County Clerk Jacobs. “I am pleased to be able to work with my partners in government in order to make County services more widely available, which includes offering convenient alternatives for our customers to obtain passports.”

Applicants will be able to apply for a passport card, passport book or both. Payment must be in the form of check or money order. No cash or credit cards will be accepted and reservations are necessary. For an additional fee, the County Clerk’s Office offers an expedited service which reduces the processing time to 3 days.
