Polk County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller Stacy Butterfield is honoring U.S. military veterans and active-duty personnel this November by offering free passport photos.
“With Veteran’s Day approaching in November, my office is showing support for the brave men and women who have served and are currently serving our country by waiving passport photo fees.” Clerk Butterfield said. “Waiving this fee during November is a small gesture of appreciation and gratitude that my office can show our nation’s heroes.”
The fee for a passport photo at the Clerk’s office is normally $10.70
To be eligible, veterans and active-duty personnel can present their DD-214, military ID, or have a veteran designation on their driver’s license.
Passports in Polk County are currently being processed by appointment only at all three locations in Bartow, Lakeland, and Winter Haven. Appointments can be made by phone at 863-534-4000. Customers are required to undergo a health screening before entering the courthouse.
