In need of a passport for you or your kids? This Saturday, Sept. 17, is Passport Day in the United States, the one day a year you can apply for a passport at a Regional Passport Agency without having to make an appointment.
If you’re planning international travel, visit one of several Passport Agencies to apply for a passport to be created through standard processing, which takes about 4-6 weeks, or fork over an extra $60 for expedited processing, which takes 2-3 weeks. The U.S. government also reports that the agencies plan to offer passport-themed events for kids and adults on Saturday.
However, keep in mind that many of the agencies do not provide photography; you’ll have to bring in head shots yourself to be used on your passport.
