South Florida — Need a passport, but can’t make it to the Post Office during regular business hours? To ensure U.S. citizens are prepared to travel internationally, two South Florida Post Offices are hosting Passport Fairs this month:
Saturday, March 21, 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Fort Lauderdale Main Office, 1900 W Oakland Park Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33310-9998
Saturday, March 28, 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
West Palm Beach Main Office, 3200 Summit Blvd, West Palm Beach, FL 33410-9998
Passport Fairs do not require appointments; however, customers are encouraged to arrive early, as applicants will be served on a first-come, first-served basis until the applicant maximum capacity has been reached. Passport photo services will be available for those needing a new or updated passport photo.
To save time, customers can visit www.usps.com/passport to learn about the application process and also download and complete an application form (except for signature) before coming to the Passport Fair. To obtain a passport, applicants need to do the following:
