Default National Passport Day !!!!

in the Sunday Travel section today...

The Department of State has declared Saturday March 27th, 2010, as Passport Day USA. Officials in 23 regional passport offices nationwide (new orleans has 2 locations), will take walk up applicants for passport books, pssenger cards or both..the move is a departure from standard procedures. regional offices usually don't do passport business on weekends and usually require to either make appointments or mail off passport applications applications and renewal paperwork unless travelers are scheduled to leave the country in the next few weeks..instead of that lengthier process staffers will Saturday will take customers without appointments. customers can request routine or expediated service in getting new or renewal passport...cost will vary from $35 (anyone under 16 who need a passport card and aren't in a hurry) to $160 (over 16, need a passport book and are willing to pay for expedited service)

this is a Godsend for me since my current passport expires in May...hope this announcement helps my fellow cruisemates

yes along with the completed application and a personal check or money order..(in other words follow the directions as if you were going to mail it

it's designed to cut down on the process time hopefully by weeks ..they know that this it the time of year for a heavy workload due to the fact that the summer is peak travel period outside the country

smart move by our Department of State
