Due to new federal regulations, passport applications are no longer being accepted at the Blaine and Ramsey license centers.
A new Blaine Passport Center opened Nov. 1 and is the only Anoka County facility accepting passport applications.
It is located adjacent to the Blaine License Center at 10995 Club West Parkway, Suite 700b, in Blaine.
Due to limited office space and staffing levels, customers are strongly encouraged to make an appointment to submit a passport application.
Go to anokacounty.us/passports to use the convenient online appointment scheduler or call 763-323-5777.
Walk-ins will be accepted only if an appointment slot is open.
It takes approximately 15 minutes per applicant to process an application.
The Blaine Passport Center will be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and 1-5 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.. The center is closed Saturday and Sunday.
