Davidson County Clerk of Court’s Office to Host Passport Day February 8th 2020
It may not feel like it right now, but spring is right around the corner and that’s why Davidson County Clerk of Court Sandie Tysinger Chappell is already looking ahead and thinking of those in Davidson County who may wish to travel in the coming year. Clerk Chappell and her team of clerks will host a “Passport Day” on Saturday, February 8th, 2020, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. to allow everyone the opportunity to apply for a passport, or renew their current one, in anticipation and preparation for their spring travel plans. This event will be held at the clerk’s office in the Davidson County Courthouse, which is located at 110 West Center Street in Lexington.
Chappell is offering this special Saturday Passport Day as an additional option for the citizens of Davidson County who may otherwise find it difficult to come to the clerk’s office during its normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Chappell and her team are looking to better serve the citizens of Davidson County and believe this is one way to do that since those taking advantage of this special event will not have to leave their jobs or pull their children from school to get their passports processed.
U.S. citizens will receive passport information and can apply for their passport at the event. Applicants can expect to receive their passport in approximately four (4) to six (6) weeks for routine service and about two (2) to three (3) weeks for expedited service.
The fee for a passport book for regular service for ages 16 and over is $110, and $186.48 for expedited service (which must be payable in the form of a personal check or money order). For ages 15 and under, the fee for regular service is $80, or $156.48 for expedited service. Passport cards for ages 16 and older are $30, and $15 for ages 15 and under (both to be payable by check). You can expedite the passport cards by adding a $60 expedite fee.
There is also a $35 processing fee for any of the above services, which can be paid in cash, money order or credit/debit card. Applicants must bring with them a certified copy of their birth certificate, driver’s license, and passport photos.  All applications must be completed in black ink and can be downloaded at www.travel.state.gov.
For more information, you may contact Chappell and her team at (336) 242-6707.
