EVANSVILLE, INDIANA — The Evansville Post Office is making it easy for those on campus at the University of Evansville to apply for a passport.  The university will host a Passport Fair on Tuesday, October 30, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Harlaxton Room at the Schroeder School of Business.  The address is 1800 Lincoln Avenue, Evansville, IN 47714.

No appointments are needed and the general public is invited to attend.  Fairs serve customers on a first come, first served basis.  (There is a limited capacity for acceptance.) 

“We are excited to partner with the University of Evansville to provide this service to our customers,” said Evansville Postmaster Steven Risewick.  “We anticipate this to be our most successful Passport Fair thus far.”

Customers have the option of applying for a passport book (good for all international travel) or the passport card (good only for land and sea travel between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda).

The fees listed above must be paid with a personal check or money order. There is a $35 processing/acceptance fee and a $15 fee for photos, which can be paid for by cash, personal check, debit and credit cards or money order.  The University of Evansville Passport Fair will offer passport photo services.

Travelers are encouraged to apply for a passport several months before they are scheduled to travel overseas. The average time for passport applications and renewals is six weeks. However, for an additional fee, the State Department will expedite the application and process it within three weeks.

To apply for a passport, travelers need to complete Passport Application Form DS-11 (unsigned) and provide one of the following: a U.S. birth certificate from the Department of Vital Statistics (not a certificate of birth) or naturalization papers. Applicants must also show either a valid driver’s license, a previous or current U.S. passport book or card, Certificate of Naturalization, Certificate of Citizenship, military I.D. or a federal, state or municipal government employee I.D. card. Applicants 15 & under must be present with both parents unless consent is given; ages 16 & 17 require only one parent be present.

NOTE:  For appointments during regular passport processing hours, the U.S. Postal Service has made scheduling easier with the launch of the USPS Retail Customer Appointment Scheduler™ tool (RCAS) at RCAS™ tool provides customers with an easy, convenient way to schedule appointments to apply for a passport.
