Passport Night in Princeton This Thursday

The Mercer County Clerk will hold a special Passport Night on Thursday from 3-7 p.m. at the Princeton Township Municipal Building on Witherspoon Street.  U.S. Passport applications will be processed on site on-site for residents of Princeton and all other parts of Mercer County.

Residents are encouraged to call (609) 989-6473 and reserve a time to have their applications processed and their passport photo taken, if needed. Walk-in applicants are also welcome.

To apply for a U.S. Passport, residents will need 1) Proof of U.S. citizenship in the form of a state certified birth certificate, a U.S. naturalization certificate or a previous U.S. Passport. 2) Proof of identity in the form of a current driver’s license or state issued identification card. A U.S. Passport is valid for ten years for adults and five years for minors. The cost for a passport is $110 for adults and $80 for minors plus a processing fee of $25. The federal government requires a separate check for each passport application. Passport photos will be taken on-site for $15 or $10 for senior citizens and minors under 16. The Clerk’s Office will accept checks or money orders for payment.  No cash or credit cards will be accepted at this event.

Effective last April, the U.S. Department of State now requires the full names of a passport applicant’s parents to be listed on all certified birth certificates to be considered as primary evidence of U.S. citizenship. The new requirements will apply to all U.S. Passport applicants, regardless of their age. Under the new Federal mandate, certified birth certificates missing parental information will not be accepted as proof of U.S. citizenship.

For children, Federal passport guidelines now require both parents to appear in person — or one parent in person with notarized federal consent forms — when applying for a passport for a child under 16.

For further information on U.S. Passport requirements, and what documents are needed to obtain a passport, residents should visit www.mercercounty.org and  or call (609) 989-6473.
