Mill Creek Offers Expanded Passport Service Hours

The City of Mill Creek has expanded its passport service hours to provide more convenience to customers. Service hours are now Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. No appointments are required; applicants are served on a first-come basis.

“This is a great time of year to prepare for fall and winter travel, as passport applications submitted now will take six to eight weeks to process,” said Jodie Gunderson, administrative coordinator for the City.

The City of Mill Creek provides one-stop passport service, including photos and passport application processing. Services are also available in Spanish.

The state-regulated passport fees are $110 for an adult 10-year passport for those 16 years of age and older, or $80 for a five-year passport for those under age 16. There also is a $25 processing fee. Photos cost $16 and are guaranteed to meet passport requirements.

For those with upcoming travel plans, the City of Mill Creek can expedite passport processing for $60. Processing time routinely takes two to three weeks for expedited applications.

Another option for people traveling to Canada or Mexico via land or boat is a passport card, which costs $30 for adults and $15 for kids, plus the $25 processing fee. “This takes the place of an enhanced driver’s license, and our wait times are much lower than the Department of Licensing,” said Gunderson.

To ensure passport processing goes smoothly, Gunderson shared the following tips:
  • Fill out the passport application in advance. Various forms can be downloaded from the U.S. Department of State: https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports/forms.html.
  • Use black ink when filling out the forms.
  • Bring all required original documentation.
  • Learn about the requirements for parent’s authorization of a minor’s passport.
  • Fees must be paid by check or money order. Some fees are paid to the City and other fees paid to the Department of State, so bring two separate payments.
