Passports

The City Clerk’s Office is now a designated Passport acceptance site. Passport applications can be processed between the hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the proper documentation and applicable fees. Applicants should anticipate 10 to 20 minutes for processing.  For larger groups the processing time will be longer please plan accordingly.  If you were born in the City of Albany and need your birth certificate to complete your application, you can visit the vital statistics office while in City Hall. If you need a certified copy of your marriage license to document your name change, we are able to provide that to you for the regular fee.

Fee Schedule:
Acceptance Site Fees  US Department of State Fees 
Passport Photo Fee $10  Passport Card $30 
Execution Fee $35 Passport Book $110 
 
Please make sure you bring in a check or money order for the United States Department of State’s fees.  Currently we are accepting cash only for acceptance site fees. For current fees and rates please visit the United States Department of States website: https://travel.state.gov/content/dam/passports/forms-fees/Passport%20Fees%20Chart_TSG.pdf

For added convenience there are copies of the most commonly used forms in the Clerk's Office. You can also pre-fill renewal application or new application.
