City of Sparks to Hold “Passport Day” Saturday, March 24

For Immediate Release
March 15, 2018

Important Update: Due to weather, Passport Day has been rescheduled to March 24.

Original Release:

Sparks, Nevada -Reminder: Sparks City Hall will open this Saturday, March 17 for a special “Passport Day,” allowing first-time applicants and their children to apply for passports. While normally not open on Saturdays, the customer service office will open from 9 am to 4 pm this Saturday only. No other City services will be available.

Passport execution fees will be increasing from $25 to $35 beginning April 2. “We wanted to provide a specific Saturday that customers could come in to apply for passports before the prices increase,” said Lisa Hunderman, city of Sparks Customer Services Manager. “And, of course it’s an added bonus that applicants won’t have to take time off work or take their kids out of school to get their passports.”

No appointments are necessary this Saturday and customers will be assisted on a first come first serve basis. Passport renewals must be mailed by the applicant and cannot be processed in the City offices.

Passport applicants must bring proof of citizenship and a photo ID to complete their application. Proof of citizenship documents include:

  • Certified copy of US birth certificate
  • Certificate of citizenship
  • Naturalization certificate
  • Previous US passport
  • Report of birth abroad

If customers have not yet obtained a REAL ID, they will need to bring additional identification to verify their identity.
