Rolling Hills Library is now a location that can accept and transmit passport applications! We have been designated a Passport Acceptance Facility for the United States Department of State. Applicants are responsible for providing complete and accurate information on their passport applications. Incorrect or unacceptable information may result in processing delays and/or denial of an application. The library is not responsible for any travel problems experienced as a result of a passport application delay.
For application forms, information on documentation required, renewing a passport, required fees, and a wealth of other passport and international travel information, please visit the only official website for passport information, travel.state.gov. Routine applications take 6-8 weeks. Expedited applications take 2-3 weeks. Any other travel requiring expediency must be applied for at a Department of State Passport Agency site in person.
Passport applications can be accepted at both the St Joseph and Savannah locations, by APPOINTMENT. Go to the online appointments page for BELT BRANCH or for SAVANNAH BRANCH or call the library branch where you want to make your appointment.
You must come to your appointment PREPARED with all of the correct documentation and you can fill out the application in advance but leave it unsigned. A checklist is available which lists the paperwork and other information needed. Copies are also available at library locations. In most instances, BOTH PARENTS must be present to witness and sign passport applications for any child 15 and under.
*NOTE: The passport acceptance process takes anywhere from 15-60 minutes per application so please plan accordingly. For example, a family of four should probably make two consecutive appointments in order to ensure the process can be completed in the time reserved.
