Poulsbo Municipal Court > Passports
Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Situation we have suspended all passport services in order to practice social distancing. We will not be accepting any passport appointments at this time. We expect to resume passport services when Kitsap County has been approved for Phase III of the Governor’s Re-opening Plan and the city is allowed to open to the public. After that point, passports will be accepted on a limited basis and social distancing guidelines will be in place. Please visit the Department of State website at http://www.travel.state.gov to find updated information on the agencies nearby that are offering acceptance services.
Passport applications are accepted on Thursdays only by appointment. Passport forms are available at City Hall on the 3rd floor. All parties applying for a passport, including children, must be present for the passport appointment. You will need to have your application form(s) filled out prior to your scheduled appointment. If you are late, or the Passport Agent is unable to complete your application due to missing required items, your appointment may have to be rescheduled to another day. To schedule a passport appointment please call (360) 779-3901, option 3.
