Event Notice: Passport Application Event

The Manatee County Clerk of Court is hosting a passport application event from 8:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. on Saturday, March 24th at the Manatee County Historic Courthouse located at 1115 Manatee Avenue West, Bradenton. As an added convenience, the Clerk’s office is equipped to take passport photos on-site for a fee of $16.05. Customers attending this event will also benefit as the passport execution fee for first-time applicants increases from $25 to $35 effective April 2, 2018. Clerk staff will be available to assist customers throughout the passport application process.

We encourage customers who are unable to apply during regular business hours to take advantage of these special Saturday hours. In an effort to serve as many customers as possible, the Clerk of Court’s office is recommending appointments be made for the event. Appointments will be scheduled in fifteen-minute increments (per person) with the last appointment time being at 12:30pm. All customers requesting an appointment will receive an email reply confirming their appointment time.
