The application for the 2018 Nebraska Passport Program will be released on October 23, 2017 and will be due on December 31, 2017.
The most important requirements for Passport Stops are:
- Be open regular, reasonable, consistent hours (including at least one weekend day) during the Nebraska Passport season (May 1 to September 30)
- Keep the same business hours throughout the Passport season (Chosen Passport stops submit their hours in February, Passport booklets are printed in March)
- Display excellent customer service and be available at all times to greet Passport visitors, stamp Passport booklets, and give out Passport app codes, if necessary
- Abide by Nebraska state law that prohibits charging participants for admission in order to receive a stamp – Many tourists will naturally invest money in things they wish to see, buy, eat, or experience, but our state laws prevent us from forcing Passport participants to pay for something at each stop
Nebraska Tourism is currently analyzing data about the 2017 Nebraska Passport Program, including how the program impacted the 80 Passport Stops.
You are welcome to download last year’s information packet for Potential Passport Stops, which includes data from the 2016 Nebraska Passport Program. 2016 Passport Information Packet
