Twelve Union County P.O.s Offer Convenient Passport Application Service
If you live in any one of the 21 Union County municipalities and need to apply for a U.S. Passport, chances are there is a Post Office within an easy 5-10 minute commute that can accept your application. Twelve Post Offices throughout Union County offer convenient passport application service on behalf of the United States Department of State.
The Union County Post Offices that offer passport application service include: Berkeley Heights, Cranford, Elizabeth Main Post Office, Fanwood, Garwood, Linden Main Post Office, Netherwood Station in Plainfield, Scotch Plains, Springfield, Summit, Union Main Post Office, and Westfield.
Although some Union County Post Offices like Garwood, Netherwood Station, and Scotch Plains accept walk-ins, many Post Offices offering passport services require an appointment. For appointments during regular passport processing hours, the U.S. Postal Service has made scheduling easier with the USPS Retail Customer Appointment Scheduler tool (RCAS) at usps.com/scheduler.
The RCAS tool will display available appointment times for participating Post Office locations that offer passport appointment services within the selected radius. Users will receive notifications of their scheduled appointment via email or text.
Application forms and information on the costs and how to apply for a passport can be found at usps.com/passport.
The U.S. Department of State’s National Passport Information Center is available to answer passport questions by phone or email in English or Spanish. If you have a question about passports you can call toll-free 1-877-487-2778 or email NPIC@state.gov.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
