Lee Clerk’s office extends hours for passport services Saturday, Nov. 6

Lee County Clerk of Court Linda Doggett is opening her office Saturday, Nov. 6 to help Spring Break travelers apply for passports. With processing times up to 14 weeks, those traveling overseas early next year are encouraged to submit passport applications soon.

Customers can schedule their appointments for the Saturday event between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at www.leeclerk.org/appointment.

“While processing times have improved, it still takes over three months to get your passport back from the U.S. Department of State,” Doggett said. “If you are planning to travel for Spring Break, you need to apply for your passport now to ensure you have it in time.”

The convenient Saturday hours are designed to help customers and families who cannot visit the Clerk’s office during weekday business hours.

Customers are asked to save time by downloading and completing their passport applications prior to coming into the office. Forms must be completed in black ink. Passport services are provided at the Clerk’s Recording Department, located at 2115 Second Street, 2nd floor, Fort Myers.

Applicants can have their passport photos taken at the Clerk’s office for $15 plus tax. Two forms of payment are also required, including at least one check or money order. To learn more about passport fees or to download forms, visit www.leeclerk.org/passports.

While routine processing is up to 14 weeks, those who need their passports sooner can purchase expedited processing and receive their passport within 10 weeks.

During Passport Day, customers will be able to record official documents, such as deeds and mortgages, without an appointment.
