May I see your passport, please?

Whether you’re studying in Switzerland, having spring break in Cancun, gambling in Windsor or backpacking in Europe, if you are planning to travel out of the country, this may become a familiar question for you.

Kent State’s Office of Global Education, Department of Mail Services and the United States Postal Service are partnering to hold a Passport Fair on Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Kent Student Center Main Floor. The Passport Fair is part of activities marking International Education Week, taking place Nov. 14-19. Attendees can avoid the drive to Akron, Cleveland, Canton or Youngstown to apply for a passport, and accomplish this task right here on campus.

Did you know that if you are traveling to Mexico or Canada, you will now need a passport card? You also need a passport book for any other country you are planning on visiting.
