Getting ready to travel abroad in 2020? If you're traveling internationally, you will need a passport. While it’s not a complicated process, it can take several weeks, so it’s important to start your application process as soon as possible. 

The State Department hosts special passport fairs across the country every month. These events are designed for first-time applicants and those applying for children using a DS-11 form.
