Passport Day in the USA

On Saturday, March 9, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. the University of Arizona Passports Office will be holding a special event. UA Passport Office is collaborating with the Department of State to celebrate Passport Day in the USA.

This will be the fifth year the UA Passports office is participating in Passport Day in the USA. In the past, UA Passports has received nearly 300 passport applications and 150 passport photos during this event.

Passport Day in the USA is a national passport acceptance and outreach event. The annual event focuses on giving US citizens the opportunity to apply for or renew their passport and provide information about passports.

This year’s focus is on family travel. The event, taking place on a Saturday, provides suitable hours for working parents, ensuring they don’t have to miss work to apply for their own passport or for their children’s.

If you are unable to attend the event, there are other ways to participate. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Passport Services, Brenda S. Sprague will be holding a live Q&A via twitter. Tweet @TravelGov using #AskState on Monday at 10:00 a.m. EST. She will be answering questions about passports for one hour. Join the conversation throughout the week by using the hashtag, #PPTDay.

Information on the cost and how to apply for a U.S. passport is available at or U.S. citizens may also obtain passport information by phone, in English or Spanish, by calling the National Passport Information Center toll‐free at 1‐877‐487‐2778.
