In light of Collin County’s passport offices’ recent closures, another option for residents in need of passports will become available this week.
During a Collin County Passport event April 24-25, residents may apply for a passport at the Plano Northwest Post Office, located at 3905 Hedgcoxe Road, Plano. To submit an application, residents must visit the post office by appointment only either day from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
To schedule an appointment, email your name, phone number, email address, number of people in your party and your estimated arrival time to CollinPassportEvent@state.gov. You may submit a time frame of 9-11 a.m. or 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
While both of Collin County’s passport offices, located in Plano and McKinney, have not been able to accept passport applications since a suspension in late December, there are various facilities in the area for residents to apply for passports year-round, including:
