Passport Day Scheduled For March 10
EL PASO — Nothing keeps you grounded like an expired or non-existent passport, so if you’re planning to travel overseas this summer, you’ll want to be sure to have a valid one.
On Saturday, March 10, the Department of State will host its fourth annual “Passport Day in the USA.” U.S. citizens may apply for a passport book or passport card at any one of the 25 domestic passport agencies or hundreds of participating non-Department passport application acceptance facilities.
This is the only day all year U.S. citizens may apply directly at a passport agency without making an appointment. To reduce waiting times on March 10, customers are encouraged to complete applications online at http://travel.state.gov and bring their completed, unsigned forms to the nearest passport agency or acceptance facility.
U.S. citizens may visit the website at http://travel.state.gov for a listing of participating acceptance facilities. The website also contains information about the passport application, fees, and processing times. This information can also be obtained by calling the National Passport Information Center toll-free at 1-877-487-2778 or TDD/TTY at 1-888-874-7793.
