** NOTICE: Passport Services in the Haines Borough are suspended until after the first of the year 2023 since we are so short staffed. We regret the inconvenience.  If this is an EMERGENCY- contact 766-6400 and we will see if we can accommodate you.  Thank you for your understanding and happy holidays!**

The Haines Borough Administration is a passport application acceptance facility.

All first time applicants, passports for those who are under the age of 16, or those who had their last passport issued before they were 16 must apply in person. Normally both parents must accompany their child to the passport appointment.

Passports are currently taking 7-10 weeks to process for normal service.  Expedited service is available to help process your passport faster for an additional fee, and the estimated process time is 6-8 weeks.  If you are traveling sooner than 4-6 weeks, we are happy to give you the phone numbers to make an in-person appointment at a regional processing center (Seattle).

The Haines Borough has also compiled a check list to help those who are applying for their passports get ready for their appointments which have been attached (below). Please make sure you are using the current version of the passport application form (DS-11 04-2022).

PASSPORT PHOTOS- Contact Radio Shack @ 766-2337 or if you have a smart phone, there is free app you can download to help you take a passport photo.  Then you can print your photo at Caroline's Closet for a nominal fee.  For information on Passport Photos, please see the following link:
