Welcome To New Trier Township Government

   Important Announcements

Bad photos are the #1 reason that passport applications are rejected.  In 2015, over 200,000 photos were rejected, delaying travel and interfering with application processing times.  In September 2016, U.S. Department of State is initiating the #PicturePerfectPassport campaign to reduce the amount of rejected photos.  Starting November 1, 2016, glasses will no longer be allowed in passport photos.
