Passport providers near Int. Falls?

7 posts in this topic

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.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.
