If the passport is found after it’s been reported missing, the document is void. A new passport book will cost $110.
Passport Day on the Hill has become an annual affair. Over the past three or four years, the State Department has averaged 100 to 150 passports. In 2013, close to 200 passport applications were accepted.
For those who can’t make it to Thursday’s event, the State Department has Capitol Hill liaison offices. Services for the House are located in the Rayburn basement, while the Senate office can be found in the Russel basement. Both offices provide a full range of support services members and their staff with two full-time Foreign Service available to assist with questions related to visas and passports.
