County clerk to hold passport outreach event

Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns announced that his office will conduct a passport outreach event at the AAA Travel and Insurance Center in Amherst to be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20 at the AAA Travel and Insurance Center located at 100 International Drive, Amherst.

Applicants will be able to apply for a passport card, passport book or both. Payment must be in the form of check or money order. No cash or credit cards will be accepted. The March outreaches will come just before fees from passport applications increase in April.

Reservations are required and can be made by contacting the County Clerk’s Office at 858-8866. This community event is for first-time passport applicants only. These outreaches are open to anyone in the public who schedules an appointment. Applicants do not have to be AAA members to attend the outreach.

A certified copy of birth certificate and proof of identity such as a current New York State driver’s license or non-driver identification card is required in order for any application to be accepted. Passport photos can be taken onsite and are available for $8.95 for AAA members and $10 for non-members. For minors under the age of 16 who may be applying, both parents need to be present.

Passport applications, a list of all required documents and a schedule of fees is available by visiting www.erie.gov/passports or by contacting the Erie County Clerk’s Office at 858-8866.
