Traveling for the Holidays or Spring Break?
It’s not too early to start thinking about your passports.

Jackson, Wyo. – Oct. 25, 2016 – If you think you might be traveling this winter or spring, it’s not too early to begin securing travel documents for you and your family. The Clerk of District Court Office is encouraging Teton County residents to check their passport status well in advance of target travel dates, and to renew or acquire passports early to avoid last-minute stress, expedited service fees, and a possible fee increase in the new year.


“Spring break may seem like a long time from now, but we can tell you from experience that it sneaks up on people,” said Anne Comeaux Sutton, Clerk of District Court.


The Clerk of District Court Office processes more than 1,000 passport applications a year, Sutton said. Often, those applications process without a hitch, taking 4 to 6 weeks under routine services. For an additional $60 fee, applicants can request expedited services, which take approximately 2 to 3 weeks.


However, some applications are trickier than others, requiring the applicant to hunt down original certified copies of documents, to deal with name changes, or in the case of applications for children, to find times to visit the Clerk of District Court Office that work for both children and parents.


Parents are reminded that for those 15 years old and under, BOTH parents must be present with their child to apply for a passport. For youths ages 16 and 17, at least one parent must be present with their child.


“Parents of school-age children may find it helpful to apply for passports on no-school days, as children and both parents must be present to apply,” Sutton said. The next no-school day options (public schools) are this Friday, Oct. 28, and Wednesday, Nov. 23. The Clerk of Court Office is closed Nov. 11th. 


Another potential incentive to process passport applications sooner rather than later is that fees may be going up in 2017. There’s a federal proposal in the works to increase passport fees by $10 in 2017, Sutton said.


The public can stop by the Clerk of Court Office, 180 S. King St., to apply for passports weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Sutton recommends that applicants call first.


“If they call first, we can save them time and ensure that they have everything they need before they come in person,” Sutton said. “That way, they only have to make one trip.”
