MOUNT VERNON — The Mount Vernon Post Office is hosting a Passport Fair on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to noon to provide passport information to U.S. citizens and to accept passport applications. The Postal Service is joining the U.S. Department of State in celebrating Passport Day in the USA, a national passport acceptance and outreach event.
“We are happy to leverage the convenience of the Postal Service and partner with the Department of State to help our customers apply for passports,” said Mount Vernon Postmaster Cindy O’Brien.
Information on the cost and how to apply for a passport book and/or passport card can be found at www.usps.com/passport or www.travel.state.gov. U.S. citizens also may obtain passport information by phone, in English and Spanish, by calling the National Passport Information Center toll free at 877-487-2778.
In 2010, the Postal Service accepted 6.7 million passport applications at retail locations across the country.
