National Passport Day


Tue, Mar 23rd, 2010
Posted in Government

The Fillmore County Auditor/Treasurer's Office is joining the Department of State in celebrating "Passport Day in the USA." This is the second annual national passport acceptance and outreach event. The Fillmore County Auditor/Treasurer's Office at 101 Fillmore Street in Preston will be open from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm on Saturday, March 27, 2010.

Fillmore County is participating in this outreach on Saturday, March 27, because:

Beginning on June 1, 2009, U.S. citizens were required to present a passport book, passport card, or other travel documents approved by the U.S. government to enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda at land borders and sea ports of entry.

Fillmore County is participating in "Passport Day in the USA" to remind all Fillmore County and United States citizens that if you are planning a car trip to Alaska, Mexico, or Canada, you will need a passport book or passport card to enter the United States. This requirement includes infants and children. Currently it takes at least four weeks from the date of application to receive your passport book or passport card. Please remember this as you make your summer vacation plans.

The Fillmore County Auditor/Treasurer's Office will be open Saturday, March 27, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. to provide passport information and accept passport applications for U.S. citizens.

Fillmore County will take passport photos at a cost of $15.00.

Minnesota Birth Certificates will be available for $16.00.

Fillmore County will accept and process passport applications.

Information about passports and "Passport Day in the USA" is available on the Fillmore County web page at www.co.fillmore.mn.us or by calling the Fillmore County Auditor/Treasurer's Office at 507-765-4701.

Remember the second annual Passport Day in the USA is Saturday, March 27, 2010, from 10:00 am till 3:00 pm at the Fillmore County Auditor/Treasurer's Office, Fillmore County Courthouse, 101 Fillmore Street Preston, MN 55965.
