(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- In continuing with her ongoing efforts to "Bring Government Closer to the People", Miami-Dade County Commissioner Sally A. Heyman has joined The Hispanic Coalition to sponsor a U.S. Passport Day in District 4. On Friday, February 15th from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. those persons interested in applying for a new or renewed U.S. Passport can go to the North Shore Park & Youth Center located at 501 72nd Street in Miami Beach.
"Hosting this event in my district will allow those applying for a passport the ability to have face to face contact with members of the Miami Passport Agency without having to travel to downtown Miami to do so," said Commissioner Heyman.
Each new U.S. Passport applicant must have: a government issued I.D.; two (2) identical passport size color photos; proof of U.S. Citizenship (certified copy of birth certificate or original Naturalization Certificate -no photocopies will be accepted). If you are applying for a passport for your minor children, you need to bring the child's birth certificate listing parent(s) names. If both parents cannot attend, then a notarized consent form signed by the non-appearing parent must be submitted with the application or the applying parent must submit evidence of sole custody. The cost for a NEW adult passport (16 yrs old and older) is $100; for a minor (15 and younger) $85. Payment is accepted in the form of a personal check or money order made payable to: U.S. Department of State.
To RENEW a passport, you must have your previous, undamaged passport, issued with the past 15 years; you were at least 16 years of age when your last passport was issued; you still have the same name as in your previous passport (or can legally document your name change); submit two (2) identical passport size color photos and pay $75 with a personal check or money order made payable to: U.S. Department of State.
