No appointments will be necessary Saturday, March 9, when the New York Passport Agency at 376 Hudson St.(between Houston Street and King Street), hosts ‘Passport Day in the USA”, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Citizens could walk into the agency and apply for routine or expedited service.
Customer Service Manager Robyn. J. Richards said the agency would provide passport information to U.S. citizens and accept passport applications during the planned five-hour service.
Hundreds of local acceptance facilities around the county are joining the Department of State in celebrating Passport Day 2013, the national passport acceptance and outreach event.
