This Saturday is Passport Day in the USA: Apply for a US passport, it’s never been easier

The U.S. Department of State’s Passport Day in the USA is this Saturday, April 9. This is the one day of the year that regional passport agencies and acceptance facilities across the country are open for extended Saturday hours, and no appointment is necessary to apply for a U.S. passport.

If you don’t have a passport, this Saturday is the perfect day to get one. Even if you don’t plan to leave the country, having a passport is an excellent form of identification. In fact, you never know when it will come in handy. You can look up the nearest location to apply for a passport on the State Department’s website. But before you head there, you do need to be prepared with some documentation.

Swing over to our passport tab to find out how and what you need to apply for a passport. Or you can watch the video the State Department put together about Passport Day in the USA. And if you have any questions, leave them in a comment on this post and I’d be happy to answer them!
