Passport Appointment

Passport applications can be accepted at both the St Joseph and Savannah locations, by APPOINTMENT (at least 3 days in advance) or WALK-IN if a passport agent is available.  Go to the bookings page and choose Passport Appointment from the drop down menu and then the branch you want to go to, or call the library branch where you want to make your appointment.  Appointments are 30 minutes for each person applying, but you can string them together for a family, e.g., 90 minutes for a 3-person family.

You must come to your appointment PREPARED with all of the correct documentation and payments.  You can fill out the application in advance but leave it unsigned.  Appointments go faster if you have your form filled out online and printed in advance.  In most instances, BOTH PARENTS must be present to witness and sign passport applications for any child 15 and under, or the absent parent must have a form signed and notarized to include in the packet.  We will make copies for you as part of the service, you do not need to make copies in advnce of IDs or birth certifications.

*NOTE: The passport acceptance process takes anywhere from 15-30 minutes per application so please plan accordingly.
