Passport Fair hopes to help vacationers

April 10, 2007

Albany-  The increase in demand for passports has prompted the Albany Post Office to hold a passport fair.

In the month of March alone, the U.S. State Department issued over 1.5 million passports.  In Albany, it use to take six weeks to get a passport returned, now it takes 10 weeks.

"A lot of school students are taking trips, and families taking vacations so the need is there so that's why we're doing this just to make it convenient to the public," said Bonnie Bland, U.S. Post Office Customer Relations.

The Passport fair will be held Saturday, April 28th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. To get a passport you must have completed the application, bring your original birth certificate, proof of ID, your payment, and two recent color photos. Photos will be taken on site that day.
