  • When: Saturday, July 27, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Where: 935 N. Tyndall Avenue (Southwest corner of Speedway Boulevard and Park Avenue on the UA campus. Open during surrounding construction.)

TUCSON, Ariz. — UA Passports will host a special Passport Day acceptance event Saturday. UA Passports is conveniently located on the UA campus. Passport forms and photo services are available on site.

Passport Day is a great time to apply for a passport. Here are a few advantages of applying now:

  • You don’t have to interrupt your work schedule or your children’s school schedule.
  • Summer is the slowest time of year for UA Passports because most UA students are away.
  • The holiday travel season is far enough away that you can avoid paying for expedited processing.

What to bring with you:

  • Recent color photo (2 inches by 2 inches). Photo services are available on site for $10.
  • A check or money order for U.S. Department of State passport application fees (required). Fees owed to UA Passports for application execution and photos may be paid by personal check, money order or debit/credit card. Cash is not accepted.
  • First-time U.S. passport applicants must provide proof of U.S. citizenship with original or certified documentation, as well as photocopies of such documents.
  • All passport applicants, or parents of minors applying for a passport, must have acceptable photo identification.

For complete information about required documentation and fees, please visit global.arizona.edu/passports prior to your visit to UA Passports.
