Leaving the country?

Passport application day takes place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 29, at the North Collier Government Services Center at 2335 Orange Blossom Drive. This gives those who cannot take time off on a workday the chance to file an application for a U.S. passport. Here are some tips for saving time:

¦ Visit www.collierclerk.com/recording/passports to review the requirements and fees for filling a passport application.

¦ Download and fill out a passport application from www.travel.state.gov. Use black ink and do not sign the form until you are in front of a clerk at the government services center.

¦ Know that both parents must be present when the passport application is for a minor aged 16 or younger.

¦ Make sure you have a certified birth certificate or original naturalization papers to bring to the clerk’s office.

¦ You will also need to take your passport photograph and checkbook (no credit cards accepted).
