Fort Lauderdale, Miami Passport Fairs

Traveling abroad this summer? Now's the time to apply for your passport at a South Florida Passport Fair:

Saturday, April 21, 7 a.m. - 1 p.m., Miami GMF Postal Store, 2200 NW 72 AVE, Miami, FL

Saturday, April 28, 8 a.m. - 1 p.m., Fort Lauderdale Main Office, 1900 West Oakland Park BLVD, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Employees who attend a Passport Fair must do so as an off-the-clock activity.
How to Prepare for the Passport Application Process
  • Bring 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 proof of identity. This must be either: a recently issued U.S. passport; a recently issued naturalization certificate; a recently issued certificate of citizenship; or a current valid driver’s license, government ID or military photo ID.
  • Bring a photocopy of proof of identity. Each applicant must bring a photocopy of the front and back of the ID that will be presented at the time of passport acceptance.
  • The passport application requires recent color passport photograph of you (2” x 2” in size). The Post Office will offer passport photo service for $15.  
  • To save time, employees should download the passport application at and complete beforehand in black ink. Do not sign the application.
  • All applicants, including minors, must appear in person.
  • Minors under the age of 16 must appear with both parents. If one parent is not available, a notarized authorization from the absent parent is required.
