PASSPORT OUTREACH PROGRAM AND NOTARY COMMISSIONING AT TOWN HALL 9:30 A.M. TO 2 P.M.
The Morris County Clerk’s Passport Division is taking its passport operation on Wednesday, Nov. 29 to Parsippany, the county’s most populous municipality, stopping at the municipal building on Parsippany Boulevard from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The goal of the passport outreach is to make it more convenient for residents to obtain passports, especially for people 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 hope this service makes it easier for residents of Parsippany and neighboring towns to obtain passports, which are more vital than ever for travel and also for identification purposes,’’ said Morris County Clerk Ann Grossi.
The “Passport Outreach Program’’ will benefit anyone in need of a new or renewed passport, said Grossi.
The Parsippany municipal building is located at 1001 Parsippany Boulevard, Parsippany, N.J. 07054 (for GPS).
Unlike previous Passport Outreach Program offerings, no appointments are needed. Residents can walk-in for service. Important: Applicants must arrive prior to 1:30.
County Clerk Grossi urges anyone interested in using the service to review carefully 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 is important they understand what is required to obtain or renew a passport,’’ Grossi said.
Here is what you need:
If you must expedite the passport process, an expedited process fee is $60 per application and $15.45 for overnight express mail.
Estimated processing times for passports are four-to-six weeks for routine passport service or three weeks for expedited service.
In addition to the “Passport Outreach Program” program, the County Clerk’s passport office, at 10 Court Street in Morristown, is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday thru Friday with Tuesday evening hours until 8 p.m. (but walk-ins must arrive by 7 p.m.).
