Higgins and Buffalo Passport Agency invite public to Passport Day 2017


Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) and Buffalo Passport Agency Director James Theis announced the details of Passport Day 2017, an event that provides a convenient way for residents to renew a passport or apply for a passport for the first time.

The Buffalo Passport Agency will host a special Passport Day on Saturday, October 14, 2017:

  • Day:                 Saturday, October 14
  • Time:              10:00am – 3:00pm
  • Location:        111 Genesee Street, Buffalo, NY
  • Payment:        Credit card, personal check, exact cash (no change is given)

Applicants may choose routine service (4-6 weeks) or expedited service (2-3 weeks).  Expedited service costs an additional $60.  Applicants will be seen on a first come, first served basis, and on Passport Day, no appointment is necessary.  This year, the State Department's public awareness campaign focuses on the benefits of getting a U.S. passport card and how both products (the passport book and card) are great forms of photo ID.

The Buffalo Passport Agency opened in 2010, following an appeal by Congressman Higgins.  To meet the growing demand for U.S. passports, over the last seven years, the Buffalo Passport Agency doubled its square footage and staff, and opened two additional public windows, allowing the agency to serve more residents daily.
