WINESBURG, OH — As a community service and to make it easier to apply for a U.S. passport, the Winesburg Post Office, 2162 South Main Street, Winesburg, OH 44690, will be holding special Passport Fairs on

  • Friday, February 23, 2018, from 8:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m; and from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, February 24, 2018, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • Friday, March 23, 2018, from 8:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 24, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  

No appointment is necessary to attend any of the Passport Fairs; walk-ins are welcome, and passport photo service will be available.

The Winesburg Post Office reminds applicants of the following passport application requirements:  

  • Applications must be filled out and are available at the Winesburg Post Office and may also be downloaded at
  • Proper proof of U.S. citizenship (as shown on the application DS-11 dated 09/2013), such as an official, government-authorized, certified birth certificate.
  • Proof of identity (a photo identification card). This must be either a recently issued U.S. passport; a recently issued naturalization certificate; a recently issued certificate of citizenship; or a current valid driver’s license, government ID or military photo ID. Applicants that do not currently possess a photo identification card (a photo ID) may call the Post Office for instructions.
  • A recent passport photograph of the applicant (2” x 2” in size). Passport photos can be taken at the Post Office for an additional fee.
  • All applicants must appear in person (including minors). Minors under the age of 16 must appear with both parents. If one parent is not available, a notarized authorization from the absent parent is required.

NOTE: The most important difference between a U.S. passport book and a passport card is that a passport card is not valid for international air travel. A passport card is a limited travel document, valid only for land and sea travel within North America (Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda).
