Passport Day In the USA is March 28

March 23, 2009

On Saturday, March 28, the U.S. Department of State will celebrate "Passport Day in the USA," a national outreach event established to help educate the public about U.S. travel document requirements. All Department of State Passport Agencies and many Passport Acceptance Facilities around the country will host passport application acceptance events. U.S. citizens without a valid passport book or passport card are encouraged to apply on this day.

U.S. citizens will receive passport information and can apply for their passport at "Passport Day in the USA" events. For this day only, appointments and expedite fees are not required for those applying at a Passport Agency. Applicants can expect to receive their passport in approximately four weeks for routine service and about two to three weeks for expedited service.

As of Jan. 23, 2007, everyone traveling in and out of the United States by air needs a passport. On June 1, 2009, U.S. citizens must present a passport book, passport card, or other travel documents approved by the U.S. government to enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda at land borders and sea ports of entry.

For official hours of operation for each Passport Agency, please go to  

U.S. citizens may also obtain passport information by phone by calling the National Passport Information Center toll-free at 1.877.487.2778.
