NorCo Civil Division Resumes Accepting Passport Applications

Northampton County's Civil Division is again accepting passport applications. But it's  by appointment only. To make an appointment, call 610-829-6457. Applications will be processed in the Prothonotary,. That;s a fancy word for the Clerk of the Civil Division. It's located on the Lower Level of the Courthouse at 669 Washington Street, Easton, PA 18042. Applicants who have not been vaccinated must wear a mask while at the Government Center.

You might bump into me, so you should make sure your tetanus shots are up to date. 

Information on fees and documents required for passport applications can be viewed at travel.state.gov

The County of Northampton now offers applicants the option of getting their passport photo done at the courthouse for a $10.00 fee. Anyone who wants to use this service should arrive thirty minutes before their appointment and pay the fee at the Revenue Department.

Passport applications had to be suspended in March 2020 because of the pandemic and office closures at the Department of State.

Are vax credentials being checked for entry, or may anyone identify as vaxxed and walk in maskless? Curious,

Vaxxed by choice libertarian

Expecting Northampton County residents to visit another country and dare to be exposed to different cultures, and customs is asking for a lot Bernie. The prothonotary will see very little uptick in business…
