Passport Fair at Vincent post office

Saturday, Feb. 18, the Vincent Post Office will be hosting a Passport Fair from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Come in to the Post Office at 45 Warrior Drive, Vincent, and apply for your passport card, and/or book for your summer vacations.

There will be extra staff on hand to help people wanting to apply for passports.

The things you will need to apply for a passport are a certified copy of your birth certificate (with the raised seal), a driver’s license, state ID card, or a previous passport book. Anyone 16 years or older qualifies to get an adult passport book that will be good for 10 years, and anyone under 16 can apply for a minor passport book that would be good for only 5 years. Anyone under 16 must have both mother and father present to sign, or must have acceptable documentation allowing only one parent to apply for the minor passport. Passport books are $110 for an adult book, $30 for the adult passport card. Minor books are $80 and the minor passport cards are $15. Each passport will also be charged a $25 execution fee, as well as $15 for the photo. Passport books are good for any kind of travel (land, sea, or air), while the passport card is only valid for land or sea travel to (Canada, Bermuda, Mexico and the Caribbean).
