Post office makes travel easier for southwestern CT vacationers

With new international travel security requirements, some Stamford public offices are making adjustments easier for residents. New federal regulations require Americans flying to Canada, Mexico or the Caribbean to have a passport. To meet the demand, more and more post offices are holding passport days, where they offer extended hours for the convenience of working people. Post office officials say applicants need to fill out an application, have a photo taken if they don't already have one, and wait in line to submit documentation and fees. The post office fee is $30. The state department charges a $67 processing fee for adults and $52 for kids under 16. The completed passport takes about eight to ten weeks. For an extra $60, the process can be expedited to a 2 weeks delivery.
