Passport Fair slated in Coeur d'Alene

COEUR d'ALENE — A "Passport Fair" is coming up this month in Coeur d'Alene.

U.S. Sens. Mike Crapo and Jim Risch and U.S. Reps Mike Simpson and Russ Fulcher, all of Idaho, in coordination with the U.S. Department of State, announced seven “Passport Fairs” to be held throughout the state from May 29 to June 1.

The fairs will be held in Sandpoint, Idaho Falls, Coeur d’Alene, Moscow, Pocatello, Twin Falls and Meridian will assist Idahoans with passport needs closer to home. 

Idahoans in need of a passport, or those whose passports have expired or will expire in the next year, may register for an appointment.  Appointments should be made in advance, online, a press release said.

“We recognize the high-demand for passport services within Idaho’s fast-growing population,” Idaho’s Congressional Delegation said. “Without a permanent passport office in-state, events like these will help Idahoans obtain expedited passport services closer to home. Our staff continue to work diligently to meet the needs of Idahoans seeking assistance with passport-related issues and applications.
