Passport Day in the USA: March 9, 2013

Feb 21, 2013

On Saturday, March 9th from 10am – 3pm, US citizens may apply for or renew their passport book or passport card at any one of 25 passport agencies/centers that are open to the general public. No appointment is necessary on March 9 – normally, U.S. citizens would have to make an appointment at passport agencies.

You may also participate in Passport Day in the USA at participating non-State Department passport application acceptance facilities such as post offices, clerks of court, and libraries. You can find the list of the participating passport acceptance facilities at

Keep in mind that passports for adults for expire every 10 years, for children under the age of 16 every five years.  For a child under the age of 16, both parents and the child need to appear in person or bring a notarized “Minor Consent” form signed by the absent parent.

If you are unable to visit one of the Department of State’s passport agencies or non-Department acceptance facilities on Passport Day, there are still ways to participate and benefit from Passport Day in the USA 2013.

@TravelGov will host a live twitter Q&A on Monday, March 4 at 10:00 a.m. EST. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Passport Services, Brenda S. Sprague will answer questions about passports for one hour. Tweet @TravelGov using #AskState, and we will answer your passport questions. Everyone is invited to join the conversation throughout the week by using the hashtag, #PPTDay. You can also visit beginning March 4 for daily passport tips and referrals to other online resources.
