Clay County Clerk
of the Circuit Court


Due to the COVID-19 health emergency, completed passports will take longer to arrive from the US Department of State than the usual 6-8 weeks normally experienced. Expedited service is NOT available at this time and the $60 expedited fee will not be collected.

Citizens planning trips should begin the passport application process as soon as possible.

Due to the many COVID-19 related office closures, our state is automatically extending the validity period of state driver licenses and state identification cards. As a result, our Clerks may be able to accept submission of these recently-expired forms of ID for purposes of passport application.

Check on the status of your previously submitted passport application:

  • Call the National Passport Information Center (NPIC) at 1-877-487-2778
  • Check online (site also allows you to sign up for email notifications)

Passport applications are currently being processed and sent to the US Department of State by Clay County Clerk’s Office staff located in two offices:

Orange Park Branch – Call for an appointment at (904) 541-2784.

Green Cove Springs/Courthouse – Call for an appointment at (904) 269-6302 (Recording Department).
