If obtaining a passport or passport card has been on your to do list that you just haven’t gotten around to, Saturday is a special opportunity for Arizona residents to apply for a passport.

More than 40 U.S. Postal Offices across all of Arizona will be participating in a passport fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to a press release.

Customers do not need to make an appointment, however customers might need to be patient as it will be based on a first-come, first-served basis.

This event will be specifically for new passport applications. Renewals will not be processed at this event.

“Our employees will help residents with passport applications, fees and photos, making the process quick and convenient,” Acting Phoenix Postmaster Tina Sweeney said in the release.

A passport book costs $145 for those 16 years and older and $115 for those under 16. Passport card fees are $65 and $50.

Those who plan to submit a passport application need to be prepared when they arrive and provide two forms of identification. Acceptable forms of identification are a previous passport, birth certificate or driver’s license.

Applicants are encouraged to print and complete their applications ahead of time to shorten the process.
