Receive a Passport Photo Free of Charge from the Union County Clerk, September 23rd – 30th

Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi invites Union County residents to receive their passport photo at the County Clerk’s Main Office in Elizabeth or the Annex Office in Westfield during the week of September 23rd to September 30th when applying for or renewing passports with a DS-11 form.

Normally there is a fee of $10.00 for a passport photo, which is required as part of the application process.

“I hope that the offer of a free photo will encourage persons planning a trip during the fall or winter to apply for, or renew, their passports well before they head overseas,” said Ms. Rajoppi. “We also encourage members of the public to obtain a passport and keep it up to date, regardless of any travel plans.”

The free passport photo offer is part of a national effort to encourage the public to conduct their passport business during September, which has been designated as National Passport Month.

By making arrangements in September, when travel is down, passport applicants can avoid the stress and added expense of applying at the last minute.
