Jacksonville residents with busy schedules can apply for passports at 2-day event

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Need a passport?

The Duval County Clerk of Courts is providing two additional opportunities for travelers to increase their frequent flyer miles.

The two passport day events were designed with special and weekend hours to accommodate people with busy schedules.

The first event is on Saturday, April 1 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Beaches Branch on 1543 Atlantic Boulevard. The next event is Wednesday, April 5 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Duval County Courthouse on 501 West Adams Street.
