Passport Fair Comes to NCCU Nov. 16

North Carolina Central University (NCCU) and the U.S. Department of State want to help you fulfill your travel dreams by hosting a Passport Fair from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, in Room 118 of the Lee Biology Building.

No appointments are required for individuals who wish to apply for a new passport or renew an existing one, said Wendy Thompson, of NCCU’s Office of International Affairs. NCCU students faculty and staff, students from area high schools, as well as the general public are invited to participate.

“We invite anyone planning a trip abroad - or who just want to be ready in case the opportunity arises – to visit the Passport Fair and complete the application process,” Thompson said.

Recent NCCU graduate Constance McDuffie ‘16 said she spent a month last summer studying in Costa Rica at Universidad Veritas and living with a host family near the capital of San Jose. She called it the experience of a lifetime.

“It was eye-opening and a great chance to immerse myself in the language,” McDuffie said. “There’s no better way to get to know another culture than to go abroad.”

No appointments are required to attend the Passport Fair. However, citizens must bring several documents and a 2-by-2-inch photograph in order to have their passport applications processed.

Details and required documents are available at www.travel.state.gov.

Required items to bring are:

·      State Department form DS-11 for a new passport or DS-82 for a passport renewal. Certified copy of your birth certificate or naturalization papers that provide citizenship evidence.

·      A valid photo ID, such as a driver’s license or state issued identification card or student ID.

·      Front and back photocopies of your valid photo ID.

·      A color passport photo, size 2-by-2 inches.

·      A check or money order for the passport fee plus a $25 application fee. Adult passports are $110 and passports for minors under age 16 are $80.

Children under 16 require the consent of both parents or a parent with sole custody to receive a passport.
