ASU Office to Host Passport Fair
March 05, 2012
The fair will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 10 and is open to the public. The CIS Passport Office is located in the East Office Annex at 1825 S. Johnson St. Anyone needing a passport or passport card is encouraged to attend.
The ASU Passport Office provides all the services available at the U.S. Post Office, including photos, applications, processing and renewals. Fees in the ASU office are also the same as those at the Post Office, with the exception of photos, which are slightly less at ASU. Fees for adult passports include $110 to the U.S. Department of State, $25 to ASU and $10 for passport photos, if photos are needed. The fee for an adult passport card is $30. For children under 16, the fees are $80 for a passport and $15 for a passport card.
Fees can be paid by cash, check, money order or credit card, except the State Department fee, which must be a check or money order.
To apply for a passport or passport card, applicants must provide a certified copy of their birth certificate, an official government-issued photo ID and one color passport-size photo.
All travelers entering or re-entering the U.S. must have a passport or passport card, even at the Mexico border. Passport cards are about the size of a driver’s license and can substitute for a regular passport for land and sea border crossings from Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean and Bermuda. However, international air travelers must have a regular passport.
More information on the cost and how to apply for a passport and/or a passport card is available at www.travel.state.gov. U.S. citizens may also obtain passport information by phone, in English and Spanish, by calling the National Passport Information Center toll-free at 877-487-2778.
