Under the direction of the city council, Saratoga Springs has opened a new Passport Acceptance Facility. This is one of 7300 of these type of facilities located throughout the United States.
The role of a Passport Acceptance Facility is to accept a person’s application and fees, verify their identity and citizenship, review their applications for completeness, and mail the completed applications to the Passport Agency for processing. You do not have to be a citizen of Saratoga Springs to use our passport office.
The Saratoga Springs Passport Office will be processing passports by appointment only. Patrons will need to make an appointment at least 24 hours in advance to use this service.
Here are some tips to help patrons appointments run smoothly.
Before coming to their appointment patrons need to make sure they have all of their documentation and the passport application completely filled out. We encourage patrons to vrify that they have all of the required documentation before coming to their sappointment. A full list of what documentation you will need is avilable on the passport page of the city website.
Any appointment that does not have the application completely filled out or is missing the right documentation will be asked to make a new appointment to come back when they have the completed application and the correct documentation. Please be aware that all applicants, including children must be present in person at the appointment.
The city is excited to be able to offer this service to our citizens. This will be a great resource to those that are wanting to travel outside of the country.
