Need a passport? Apply for one at the Kitsap County Fair

PORT ORCHARD, WA—The Kitsap County Clerk's Office will once again be available to process passports at the Kitsap County Fair. Staff will be available to process applications on August 22 – 24 from 2 – 6 pm and August 25 and 26 from 10 am – 6 pm, in the Kitsap County booth in the main building.
"Most people know by now that passports are required for travel by air to and from Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean and all other foreign countries,” Kitsap County Clerk Dave Peterson said. “Because of the number of citizens applying for passports, applications are taking much longer than the usual six weeks. If you know you will need a passport, apply as early as you can.”
A passport application must be accompanied with an official certified copy (not a hospital record) of the applicant’s birth certificate, photo ID, two new passport photos and the appropriate fees, payable by check or money order. All applicants must be present. Children under 14 must be accompanied by both parents, unless permission of the absent parent is obtained and stated on a signed and notarized form.

Fees are $67 + $30 (separate checks) for each adult and $52 + $30 for each child. For expedited service from the United States Department of State, an additional $60 is required.
