Passport providers near Int. Falls?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this has been answered already somewhere, but where can a guy go about applying for or getting a passport in International Falls? How much are they, and how long will it take to get them completed?

Thanks in advance for any information!

You can apply for a passport at the Koochiching county Recorders Office 715 4th str. It costs around 100$ and it has to be sent in, and takes about six weeks usually. You don't need one to go to Canada this year or next. You might in 2008, but they will probably come up with an alternative before then.

Go to your local courthouse to get the application. Then you'll need an approved photo. Most places like Walmart, Target, or Kmart will take passport photos. Take your photos with the completed application back to the courthouse. Your passport will take anywhere from 6-10 weeks to come. When your passport comes it looks like "junk" mail. It's good for 10 years. I red the other day you'll need a passport, beginning 1-1-07, to get back into the states.

I just checked with the latest out of Homeland Security, and, for land crossings, you do not need a passport until Dec 31 2007. Wouldn't be surprised if it delayed more. They are also working on a BCC (border crossing card), to be used instead of a passport.

Thanks for the clarification JCR. The passport is needed at the end of this year for air travel. Land travel starts a year later.

you can actually do it all thru the internet except the last step. which is get in notarizd at many places and mailed. You do need a birth certificate (there are other options, but that is the easist)and you can go to the link below and down load the form and instructions so it is all ready before you take it in.

The easiest I have found is to go to your local post office. There is a packet to fill out, get two identical passport type photos(wallgreens), return to post office with check,about 4wks got passport.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
