Ocean View Post Office Hosting Passport Fair

Posted:
OCEAN VIEW, Del.- The Ocean View Post Office, located at 35764 Atlantic Avenue, is hosting a Passport Fair on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 to provide passport information to U.S. citizens and to accept passport applications. Hours will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Postal Service™ is joining the U.S. Department of State in promoting National Passport Awareness Mont to increase awareness of passport requirements and service offerings.

“We are happy to leverage the convenience of the Postal Service and partner with the Department of State to help our customers apply for passports,” said newly appointed Ocean View Postmaster Mike Behringer.

Information on the cost and how to apply for a passport book and/or passport can be found at www.travel.state.gov . U.S. citizens also may obtain passport information, in English and Spanish, by calling the National Passport Information Center toll free at 1-877-487-2778.

Normally, it costs $135 for adults (16 years and older), with separate payments of $110 paid to the State Department for the passport application fee and $25 to the Postal Service for its processing fee. For persons under 16, the cost is $105, with separate payments of $80 and $25 respectively. For expedited service, add $60 for each application. Other tips include:
  •   Bring in proper proof of American citizenship or naturalization. This must be either a state-issued birth certificate; a previous passport; or a naturalization certificate, if you're foreign born. (Note: A hospital issued birth certificate isn't acceptable).
  •   Bring in one officially-acceptable state or government photo ID. This can be either a driver's license, a military photo ID, or state-issued photo ID. Workplace IDs and regular photos are generally not acceptable.
  •   Bring a clear and correctly exposed passport photo. For an additional $15 fee, your passport photo may be taken while applying for your passport at the Post Office.
  •   To save time, download passport application documents at www.travel.state.govand fill out beforehand. However, don't sign the application form. The passport acceptance clerk must witness the signing.

More information on National Passport Awareness Month can be found at http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/passports/information/awarenessmonth.html  

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
