To make it easier to apply for a U.S. Passport, Westfield postal officials are hosting a Sunday Passport Fair at the Post Office, 153 Central Ave. Special staffing will be on hand from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. dedicated to accepting passport applications and offering passport photo services. No appointments necessary and walk-ins are welcome. Passport application acceptance hours at the Westfield Post Office are normally Mon. – Fri. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sat. 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

To save time and simplify the submission process, the Westfield postal officials recommend bringing original documents and following these guidelines:

  • Download and complete a passport application at www.travel.state.gov beforehand. 
  • Bring proper proof of U.S. citizenship (as shown on the application DS-11 dated 09/2013)
  • Bring proof of identity.  This must be either: a recently issued U.S. passport; a recently issued naturalization certificate; a recently issued certificate of citizenship; or a current valid driver’s license, government ID or military photo ID.
  • Bring a photocopy of your proof of identity.  Each applicant must bring a front and back photocopy of the ID that will be presented at the time of passport acceptance.
  • The passport application requires a recent passport photograph of you (2” x 2” in size). Photo service is available at the Westfield Post Office.
  • All applicants must appear in person (including minors).
  • Minors under the age of 16 must appear with both parents.  If one parent is not available, a notarized authorization from the absent parent is required.
