LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY – More than a dozen post offices across Kentuckiana will host Passport Fairs this Saturday, August 11, 2018.  Saturday Fairs offer convenient hours to assist those needing to apply for passports before schools resume after the summer break.

Fairs serve customers on a first come, first served basis.  No appointments are needed.  (There is a limited capacity for acceptance.) 

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 http://www.usps.com/schedulerThe RCAS™ tool provides customers with an easy, convenient way to schedule appointments to apply for a passport.
