Appointments for Passport Applications Available June 24

The Wright County Auditor/Treasurer’s Office will resume accepting passport applications on June 24 by appointment only. Initially, only two weeks of appointments will be available as staff determine whether the appointment times need to be adjusted. Additional appointments will be available after the determination is made.

Applicants should be aware that all passport applications are sent to the U.S. Department of State, and there is no processing time commitment being offered. The U.S. Department of State is still operating on a limited basis and applicants should expect significant delays in receiving their passports and citizenship documents returned to them. Expedited processing is not available. Wright County staff does not have access to, nor can they give updates on the status of passport applications that have been sent for processing. The status of passport operations is updated frequently and is posted here:

Those who don’t mind waiting and wish to submit their application should visit or go to the “Make an Appointment” tab of the home page of the county website under Auditor/Treasurer to book their appointment and learn about the items required. Appointments can also be made by calling (763) 682-7572. Passport photo service is currently not available at the Government Center, so applicants will need to obtain their photo prior to their appointment. Many people visit the Recorder’s office to obtain a birth certificate or other vital record prior to applying for a passport. If one of these items is needed, you must also book an appointment with the Recorder’s office at (763) 682-7942.

Appointments are not required for adults who need to renew their current passport if the following statements about their current passport are true: was issued for a 10 year validity period, was issued after the age of 16, is not more than five years expired, is in your possession and is not damaged, name on passport is the same as current name OR name has changed and you have the certified document that shows the change. People meeting these requirements will be renewing their passport through the mail. Forms are available at the Wright County Auditor/Treasurer’s Office or at Minor passports are never eligible to renew by mail; an appointment must be made for the minor to appear in person with their parents.
