Summer is nearly upon us and the travel planning is in full swing. For some that means flying out of the Country. For those traveling the sheer thought of planning the trip, purchasing the plane ticket, and going through airport security can be overwhelming. To make things worse you realize your passport has expired, or worse yet, you cannot find it all together.

The last thing you want to do is to wait hours in line at your local post office only to make it to front counter and learn that the maximum number of applications have been reached for the day and you can no longer apply for a passport. What do you do? Do you wait in line another day? Do you cancel your trip? The alternative to waiting in line at the post office for multiple hours is to visit the Sacramento City Clerk’s Office and easily apply for your new passport.

The Sacramento City Clerk’s Department located in New City Hall at 915 I Street, New City Hall is a one-stop-shop for passport services without the long lines. The Sacramento City Clerk’s Department makes applying for a passport painless, with services being available to City employees as well as the general public.

The process to apply for a new passport is simple. Call (916) 808-8092 to schedule an appointment and during your visit make sure to bring your driver’s License, proof of citizenship, and two checks. Once you apply you will receive your new passport in the mail within a few short weeks.
