The Wailuku Post Office will observe Passport Day in the USA by hosting its second annual Passport Fair from 9 a.m. to noon, this Saturday, March 9.
During the fair, postal employees will serve as dedicated Passport Acceptance Clerks, assisting customers with new applications, and answering questions about the process. No appointment is necessary.
The mission of Passport Day in the USA is to reach out to US citizens nationwide with an annual, nationally-coordinated event that provides convenient and valuable passport services to customers. The Wailuku Post Office is the only post office on Maui participating in the event.
“We had such a positive response to last year’s event that we’re going bigger this year,” said Wailuku Postmaster Michelle Almeida in a media statement.
“We’ll have more employees assigned to help customers with their passport applications and to provide assistance with such issues as name changes and lost passports… We’re happy to leverage the convenience of the Postal Service to help our customers apply for passports during what is typically the peak month for passport demand,” said Almeida.
Last year, post offices in Hawai’i processed more than 24,000 passport applications – 633 of them were processed at the Wailuku Post Office.
The Wailuku Post Office is located at 250 Imi Kala Street, in Wailuku.
