Passport Information

START NOW if you know you need a new passport. Processing is currently taking 4-6 weeks from time of application and there is a lot of documentation to pull together.

There is a difference between a Passport book and a card. YOU NEED A PASSPORT BOOK in order to fly.

The two closest locations to apply for a passport are:

Hudson Post Office                                                 Blowing Rock Post Office
