The Charleston Passport Center is hosting a passport fair during the Federal Agency Expo to accept applications for U.S. passport books and passport cards on May 10th, 2019. The event is part of the U.S. Department of State’s family travel campaign which promotes parents applying early for their child’s passport before the busy summer travel season. Passport Services hosts special passport fairs to make it easier for families to apply in person due to their busy school and/or work schedule.
Both parents and legal guardians must apply in-person with their child if he or she is under age 16. If one parent or guardian cannot apply in-person on Passport Day, the Department of State has special requirements for ‘parental consent’ depending on the family’s situation.

Expedite service will be available upon request for an additional $60. Applicants will be seen on a first come, first serve basis and no appointment is necessary.
