ABILENE, Texas -

If you're planning a trip out of the country you'll need a passport.

The Abilene Post Office is holding a passport fair Saturday, February 1.  From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. someone will be at the main post office, 341 Pine St., to help you with the passport application process.

To obtain a passport you need proof of citizenship, proof of identity, and a passport photograph which the post office can provide for $15.

All applicants must appear in person and minors under 16 must appear with both parents.

To save time, customers may download a passport application HERE to complete beforehand. 

Each passport application for an adult must be accompanied by a check or money order for $110 made payable to the U.S. State Department and a $25 execution fee made payable to Postmaster.

Fees for children under 16 are $80 and $25.  Credit or debit cards are not accepted.

Routine passport processing takes 4 to 6 weeks.
