Passport acceptance expanded at North Springfield Post Office

Need a Passport? The North Springfield Post Office can help. They are hosting a Passport Day this month and no appointment is necessary.

International travel increased in 2015 to more than 1.2 billion travelers. According to the World Tourism Organization, that’s 4.4% percent more than in 2014 — and the U.S. Postal Service is ready to prepare travelers for such future excursions.

Now is the time to plan that international trip of your dreams. To make it easier to apply for a U.S. Passport, the North Springfield Post Office is hosting a Passport Day with no appointment necessary on Saturday, April 16.

Just stop by the North Springfield Post Office at 39 Main Street between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on April 16th, no appointment is required. Postal clerks can even take your passport photo if you do not have one.

North Springfield Postmaster Carole Canfield says “With routine passport processing times of six weeks, it’s never too early to start planning for that out-of-country trip. And we’re here to help.” The Postmaster cites as an excellent resource for getting passport paperwork and locating other acceptance facilities across the nation.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

    Yay for adding this service!! Now, if we can only get Congress to re-establish Postal Savings Banks, we can start getting out from under Wall Street's criminality.
