Passport Day 2023 - Apr 1, 2023

If your future travel plans require a passport, make sure you allow plenty of time to complete the application process. The U.S. Department of State recently warned that mail delays are significantly impacting processing times for passport applications. Routine service can take up to 10-13 weeks from the day you submit your application. Expedited service can take up to 7-9 weeks.

Let us help you plan ahead and avoid delays which may affect your trip! On Saturday, April 1st, we are holding a passport event to help families juggling hectic work and school schedules by providing extended office hours for processing passport applications. We will process your passport photo FREE OF CHARGE and waive our $16.05 fee on this day only.

  • Passport Event - Extended office hours exclusively for processing passport applications.
  • Saturday, April 1, 2023, from 8:00am – 12:00pm
