Currently the Federal Government is taking 14-16 weeks to process Passport applications (7-9 weeks if expedited). Despite that, Hempstead Town continues to accept passport applications BY APPOINTMENT ONLY Monday through Friday 8 AM to 4:45 PM, with late nights on Thursdays until 7 PM (excluding holidays). Please call the Hempstead Town Clerk's Passport Office at 516-812-3100 to schedule your appointment. It is also important to note that many countries will not allow a Passport that expires within six months of travel to be used for entrance, so it is important to check those requirements if your Passport is near expiration. Please keep the U.S. State Department delays in mind when scheduling travel plans abroad.
