Post offices holding Passport Fairs Saturday for processing applications

For customers planning international trips, several post offices will host a Passport Fair this Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018, including the Franklin post office and the Belle Meade post office.

Fairs serve customers on a first come, first served basis. No appointments are needed. (There is a limited capacity for acceptance.)

For appointments during regular passport processing hours, the U.S. Postal Service has made scheduling easier with the launch of the USPS Retail Customer Appointment Scheduler™ tool (RCAS) athttp://www.usps.com/scheduler.  The RCAS™ tool provides customers with an easy, convenient way to schedule appointments to apply for a passport.

Customers who would like to know when their passport arrives for delivery now have an innovative option as well. Informed Delivery allows registered residential customers to view digital images of their incoming mail before it’s delivered to the mailbox.  Information and registration is available at www.informeddelivery.usps.com.

The Postal Service suggests travelers check the expiration date on their U.S. passport. Many countries require a passport have as much as six months’ validity remaining for entry.
