Plan Ahead as Passport Processing Times Have Been Lengthened

The U.S. Department of State has notified Passport Acceptance Agencies, such as The Bloomfield Township Clerk's Office, that processing times for passports has been lengthened.

In a statement to agencies, the Department of State said, "We have updated our public information to reflect that routine processing of a passport application now takes 8-11 weeks, and expedited processing (for an additional $60) takes 5-7 weeks. Our processing times begin the day we receive an application at a passport agency or center, not on the day the customer applied for a passport at an acceptance facility. We are no longer using door-to-door timeframes to calculate our estimated routine and expedited service times. Mail times may vary across the country."

The Clerk's Office processes passports by appointment only! Visit the Township website for more information on passports and to schedule an appointment.
