The Morris County Clerk’s Passport Division is taking its passport operation “on the road” starting on Oct. 8 in Jefferson to make it more convenient for people to obtain passports, especially for those who may not be able to come to the County Clerk’s passport office in Morristown or to get to any passport office due to their working hours.
“We think this service will be of great help to many Morris County residents whose busy schedules make it difficult to make the time to obtain passports, which are more vital than ever for travel and also for identification purposes,’’ said Morris County Clerk Ann Grossi.
“We hope to offer convenient passport service at various locations across Morris County in the future.
The “Passport Outreach Program’’ will benefit anyone in need of a new or renewed passport, said Grossi. The passport session in Jefferson will be held on Thursday, Oct. 8, from 4:30-8 p.m. at Camp Jefferson, which is located at 81 Weldon Road, Lake Hopatcong, 07849.
Appointments are required for the Passport Outreach Program, and can be made by calling 973-285-6161.
Grossi urges anyone interested in using the service to carefully review what they must bring to the passport center, and to call her office if they have any questions.

“We certainly want this process to go smoothly for applicants, so it’s important they understand what is required to obtain or renew a passport,’’ Grossi said.
