Previously, Kitty Hawk and Buxton post offices were the only locations in Dare County authorized to accept passport applications. Recognizing the need for another location, House went through the process to become approved and have staff trained to provide the service.

“We look forward to assisting citizens with their passport needs,” said House. “Our goal is to provide outstanding customer service and offering this service in Manteo will make it more convenient for many people to apply for a passport.”
