Passport Processing

COVID-19 Update

As of October 26, 2020, Passport Processing Services will be available on a reduced schedule and limited basis in the Friends Room of WTML. Appointments may be made for individual, adult citizens only and applicants must observe the COVID-19 protocols outlined below. These modified processes have been implemented to ensure the health and safety of Town staff and applicants and we appreciate your cooperation and compliance.

Scheduling an Appointment

Appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance by contacting the Customer Service Center at (860) 652-7710.

All appointments will be held in the Friends Room of WTML and will be scheduled within the following service hours:

  • Monday - 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays - 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

What to Bring / Expect at your Appointment

During the pandemic, all applicants must follow these COVID-19 appointment guidelines:

  • Only 1 applicant will be permitted in the Friends Room at a time. Please make any necessary arrangements for children or family members accordingly.
  • Wear a face mask/covering over the nose and mouth at all times while in the WTML building.
  • Bring all required documentation and copies, completed application, check payment (no cash), identification, and passport photo with you to the appointment.
    • Pens and copy-making will NOT be available to minimize contact and document handling.
    • You will need to reschedule your appointment if you do not have all of the required items.
  • Upon arrival, please remain in your vehicle and, at your scheduled appointment time, call the passport Agent at (860) 652-2212 to inform her of your arrival. (please do not call early as the Agent may be with another applicant)
  • Over the phone, the Agent will review a health screening checklist with you and confirm you are alone, have all of your required paperwork and payment, and are wearing a face covering.* The Agent will then let you know you may enter the building. Enter the rear WTML entrance through the double doors and go to your immediate left towards the Friends Room. Take a seat at the end of the table opposite the Agent. A Plexiglas unit will separate both parties and the Agent will proceed with the appointment

* PLEASE NOTE: If you do NOT pass the health screening checklist, or do not have all your required documentation and check payment, your appointment will be rescheduled.

Cancellations / Rescheduling

If you, or anyone you have come into contact with is experiencing symptoms of any illness, or has traveled to an area on the state travel advisory list and has not completed the required quarantine, please contact the Customer Service Center to cancel or reschedule your appointment as soon as possible. Thank you for being courteous of our staff members' health and well-being.
