SAN ANTONIO (January 5, 2018) – The City of San Antonio, Office of the City Clerk will host a Passport and Vital Records Day on Saturday, January 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Municipal Archives & Records Facility, 719 S. Santa Rosa. This Passport and Vital Records Day provides the opportunity to apply for or renew a Passport on a Saturday.

Are you ready for spring break? Christmas and midterms are now behind us. Across the US, high school and college students are making plans for their spring break vacations. Get your passport applications submitted or renewed before you make spring break travel plans and avoid paying expedite fees!

The Passport Book costs $110 for adults and is valid for 10 years and $80 for children 15 years old and younger. Children's Passports are only valid for five years and children must appear with both parents or guardians to apply for a passport.

Be aware that ID requirements for domestic flights will be even more strict for this year’s spring break. Starting this month, the US government will start enforcing REAL ID requirements at airports. If you don’t have a REAL ID certified driver’s license, you will need to use your passport to catch your flight!
