The Clinton Township Clerk's office accepts passport applications on behalf of the United States Department of State. U.S. citizens planning international travel may apply for their passports at the Clinton Township Clerk’s Office, 40700 Romeo Plank Road, during business hours.
The fees that are charged are set by the federal government and are the same everywhere: $25 for processing the application and $110 for the adult passport. Applicants are required to bring two passport photos (obtainable at Kinko's, local drugstores and AAA, among other locations), a sealed birth certificate (from the clerk’s office of the county of their birth), a driver’s license, and two checks. Please write one check payable to the U.S. Department of State for $110.00 and the other check payable to the Charter Township of Clinton for $25.00. Applications are available at the Clinton Township Clerk’s Office. The new passport fees complete list can be viewed by clicking here.
As a certified application acceptance agency, the Clerk’s Office forwards all materials to the Philadelphia U.S. Department of State office, from where the passport is issued to the applicant, a process that takes about six weeks.
Our staff is required to get trained and receive certification from the U.S. Department of State. This service makes the Civic Center even more of a one-stop shop for persons and we’re happy to offer that convenience. In addition, when people choose this Clerk’s Office to be the agency that processes their application, the $25 fee goes to the general fund, which will be a boost for the township’s budget.
