Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs announced that his office is hosting a special “Passports on the Move” Outreach on Wednesday, June 5th, at the Eastern Hills Mall from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The Clerk’s Office will be set up in the Center Court Commons, between Bon-Ton and Macy’s. Appointments are required and can be made by contacting the Erie County Clerk’s Office directly at 716-858-8866.
Passport Acceptance Agents from the Clerk’s Office will be available to accept and process passport applications for U.S. citizens during this special community outreach as well as provide passport information. “I encourage anyone planning their upcoming summer vacation or a college student planning their next semester abroad to come to our outreach and apply for their passport,” said County Clerk Jacobs.
Applicants will be able to apply for a passport card, passport book or both. For an additional fee, the County Clerk’s Office offers an expedited service which reduces the processing time down to 3 days. Payment must be in the form of check or money order. No cash or credit cards can be accepted.
“We always want to go that extra mile for our customers and bringing our services to them does just that,” stated County Clerk Jacobs. “My office is pleased to host this outreach event for the entire community.”
Applicants will need to bring with them an original or certified copy of their birth certificate, proof of identity such as a current New York State driver’s license or non-driver I.D., and one 2x2 photo. The Clerk’s Office can also take a passport photo on-site for a $10 fee.
