Manatee Clerk & Comptroller’s Passport Division opens for two Saturdays in March

Get ready for summer travel. Our office is opening its doors on two Saturdays in March to accept passport applications.

On Saturday, March 11 and 25, from 8:30 a.m. to noon, the Clerk’s passport division will assist first-time passport applicants for adults and minors, renewal of adult passports (issued more than 15 years ago), and renewal of minor passports.

“Since 2018, my office has hosted our annual passport event to help customers, especially families with children under 18, apply for a passport without having to take time off from work or school,” said Angel Colonneso, Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller.

To help customers save time at the passport counter, the Clerk’s office recommends that customers fill out their passport applications in advance. Passport applications are available for download through the U.S. Department of State’s website at

In addition to the application, all applicants must be present and bring the following items with them:

  • A check or money order made payable to the U.S. Department of State. Please visit for a list of fees to determine the amount of your check or money order.
  • A valid government-issued ID
  • Original proof of citizenship (for first-time applicants only)
  • Expired passport book/card (for renewals only)

Passport photos are available on-site for an additional cost.
