Planning a trip? If you’re traveling abroad, take advantage of Passport Day this Saturday, September 23, 2017. Seven passport offices across the country will be open to assist travelers with either applying for or renewing a passport, no appointment necessary. Locations include San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, El Paso, and Tucson. September through November are good times to apply or renew, not only because September is National Passport Awareness Month, but also because there’s a quicker turnaround during this quiet period before January.
The San Francisco Passport Agency at the Phillip Burton Federal Building (450 Golden Gate Ave., 3rd Floor) will be open from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM this Saturday. You don’t need to make an appointment or bring proof of travel to apply for or renew your passport. Just complete your application online, then bring a printed copy of the unsigned form along with an acceptable passport photo. You can find applications here. See the flyer below, visit the U.S. Passports and International Travel website, or call 1-877-487-2778 for more details. Bon voyage!
