The DeKalb County Clerk and Recorder’s office provides passport processing services for new applicants or individuals wishing to renew their passports. Even with expedited service, however, it takes four to six weeks for processing and the return of passports.

Credit cards or debit cards are accepted for the $25 local processing fee. However, the $115 processing fee to the Department of State must be processed by check.

Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The office is located at 110 E. Sycamore Street, second floor, in Sycamore.
