National Passport Day

In case you have not heard, the passport regulations are changing as of June 1st (just 65 days away!)

In anticipation of increased demand for passports for summer travel, the U.S. State Department is holding a nationwide “National Passport Day” tomorrow — Saturday, March 28th.

For the first time, many post offices (and some other passport processing locations) will be open on a Saturday and accepting passport applications. To find a location near you, use the State Department’s search function.  Here in Rhode Island, six communities are taking part in the Passport Day with Saturday hours available in Bristol, Greenville, Pawtucket, Providence, Wakefield, and Warwick.

Why should you care? Because processing times are in the four-to-six week range right now, and the summer travel season is rapidly approaching. Since this is the year of travel bargains, you won’t want to miss out on that trip to the Caribbean, Europe, etc.


You provided excellent guidance for us. I appreciated that you really had us think about what was most important to us when we were selecting the right cruise – and not to totally focus on what other people had to say. THANK YOU for helping to make this a memorable trip for our family! It really was a trip of a lifetime!

The level of service we experienced was out of this world (and we did NOT make it easy on Ann). We weren’t quite sure where we wanted to go, when we would be able to go, or what “vibe” we were going for. After asking us some key questions (what we liked, didn’t like, why, etc.) Ann helped us narrow down our trip details and planned the honeymoon of our dreams. She helped book some of our excursions, answered some emergency questions while abroad and was always available/willing to help. I think it’s safe to say we won’t be using anyone else for future travel planning – Ann is a rockstar!
