Indiana Post Offices To Hold Passport Fairs

January 13, 2011 Updated Jan 13, 2011 at 11:49 AM EST

INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – Hoosier residents planning on leaving the country on an international trip may be interested in the passport fair being put on by the Indiana Post Office.

Several Post Offices around the state of Indiana will be accepting passport applications on Saturday, January 22, 2011 and Saturday, January 29, 2011.

It is recommended that customers come in as early as possible to apply for their passports – at least eight weeks or earlier before their departure – to avoid any extra costs involved in expediting their application. The U.S. Department of State is currently reporting four to six week processing times for routine passport applications.

It costs $135 total for adults (16 years and older), with separate payment of $25 to the U.S. Postal Service for its processing fee, and $110 paid to the State Department for the passport application fee. For persons under 16, the total cost is $105 with separate payments of $25 to the U.S. Postal Service for its processing fee, and $80 to the State Department.

For expedited passport service, add $60 for each application, payable to the State Department. In such cases, the applicant also incurs overnight (Express Mail) delivery costs, payable to USPS.

Passport photos are available at all of the Post Office application sites for $15. The application fee must be paid with cash or check. Credit or debit cards, as well as cash or checks, may be used to cover the cost of photos and the acceptance fee.

To help the passport application process go smoothly and efficiently, the Postal Service recommends the following:

- Bring in proper proof of American citizenship. This must be either: a certified birth certificate issued by the city, county or state; a previous U.S. passport; a certificate of citizenship; or a naturalization certificate. (Please note: a hospital-issued birth certificate alone is not acceptable.)

- Bring in proof of identity. This must be either: a previous U.S. passport; a naturalization certificate; a certificate of citizenship; or a current valid driver’s license, government ID or military photo ID.

- Passport photograph services will be provided on site for a fee of $15.00.

- To save time, customers can download a passport application at to complete their application beforehand.

- All applicants must appear in person (including minors). Applicants under age 16 must appear with both parents. If one parent is not available, a notarized authorization from the absent parent is required.
