Recently in the USA, the U.S. Department of State celebrated “Passport Day in the USA”. The vent was a huge success as many people turned out to get their passports. This national U.S. Passport acceptance and outreach event was held throughout different states, where U.S. Passport agencies held extended hours, to help people get the U.S. passports they needed. Passport agencies were open later than usual, ready to provide U.S. passport information, to take passport photos and accept passport applications, for first time passports, as well as passport renewals and passport replacements for lost/ stolen passports.
People looking to get a new U.S. passport simply had to bring a state issued certified birth certificate, which is required when applying for a U.S. Passport. If applying for a child passport both parents had to be present as well as the child they were applying for, and had to also present the child’s birth certificate. If renewing a passport for a child under the age of 16 the original passport and the birth certificate were necessary for getting a new unexpired passport. Parents could go and take their children to apply for a passport without having to pull their kids from school to get to the passport office before it closed.
Usually when someone needs a new U.S. passport they are limited by the short office hours that a passport agency has. They must miss work or make special arrangements to be able to go and apply for a passport. This event helped to alleviate that as well as provide people with a place to go and receive information about what applying for a U.S. Passport entails.
