Passport "Fees" set to increase

The State Department has reviewed the costs involved to create and maintain Passports so effective April 2nd, it will cost $10 more to get and renew your Passport.  With the issues involving the REAL ID Act, many more people are opting to get a Passport for both domestic and international travel.  (Mind you, a Passport is required to fly internationally).  If you have been considering getting your Passport or needing to renew it, you will want to get on it sooner than later, or it will cost you more in the end.


New Passport Process in Omaha - Effective October 1, 2017

As many of you know, for awhile to apply for a Passport in Omaha meant you had to go to specific Post Office locations to make an appointment.  Then tings changed a few years ago - there is now a central location to apply which is the Omaha Passport Center.  This is/was a Postal Impression located at 5346 S 136th St in Deerfield Plaza (Millard).  You had to call to make your appointment but now another change has come.  Effective October 1, 2017 you now set your Passport Application appointment online.  I've provided a link below for your convenience.

The online scheduler also applies to the one post office location in Bellevue as well as in Council Bluffs.  However, if there are no appointments available soon enough for you, the other option I highly recommend is going to the Sarpy County Courthouse - Clerk of the Court.  No appointment is necessary - they will accept applictions during their normal business hours.
