Redwood City Adds More Hours to its Passport Acceptance Service

Redwood City, CA - January 15, 2013 - The City Clerk Department of Redwood City is a designated United States Passport Acceptance Office, where anyone can pick up and drop off their passport application or renewal paperwork. This convenient, bilingual service, located at City Hall in Redwood City, just got better with the addition of more open hours!

In order to better serve the community, City Clerk Silvia Vonderlinden, with the strong support of Redwood City Mayor Alicia Aguirre, developed a plan for expanding the hours of service offered. The result is an additional eight hours per week of bilingual staffing at the Passport Acceptance Counter, making it easier and more convenient than ever for anyone who may need this service.

Effective February 4, 2013 the new passport counter hours will be:

  • Mondays - 1 - 4 pm
  • Tuesdays & Wednesdays - 9 am - 4 pm
    (closed Thursdays, Fridays, and holidays)

The City of Redwood City's Passport Acceptance Service is located in the City Clerk Department, on the 2nd floor of City Hall at 1017 Middlefield Road, in Redwood City. Details of the Passport Acceptance Service and fees are online.

While most other passport service providers require appointments, Redwood City is one of the few passport counters on the peninsula allowing for drop-ins - no appointment is necessary! This makes it much more convenient for many people, when they need to get the necessary paperwork or drop off their application or renewal, and payment. They can do so any time during open hours without having to arrange for an appointment.

The addition of eight hours to the City's Passport Acceptance Service is being done in order to provide the entire community with the best, most convenient and efficient service possible.
