EVANSVILLE, IN — The Evansville Post Office will again offer passport acceptance at the University of Evansville at a Passport Fair on Friday, Feb. 15, from 11:00 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.  A similar event was held on campus in the fall.  

“Our partnership with the University of Evansville was so successful last time, we decided to hold another Passport Fair at the same location,” said Evansville Postmaster Steven Risewick. 

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.) 

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).

All fees must be paid with a personal check or money order. There is a $35 processing/acceptance fee and a $15 fee for photos.  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.
