The Passport Fair, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22, offers customers one-stop shopping for passports, passport photos and passport cards, officials said in a news release. 

The event is being held at the Henderson Main Post Office, 404 S. Boulder Highway.

  • Certificate of citizenship

In addition, one current ID is required, such as:

  • Current military ID (military and dependents)

Fees are as follows:

  • Check or money order to Dept. of State ($110 for 16 and over; $80 for under 16);
  • $35 to the Postal Service for its processing fee (set by the Department of State);
  • $15 per photo.
