Need a passport? Bridgewater post office can now help

Passport Day is Saturday, Jan. 14
BRIDGEWATER–The travel industry saw close to one billion international travelers in the first nine months of 2016 according to the World Tourism Organization—that’s 34 million more than the same period the prior year — and the U.S. Postal Service is ready to prepare travelers for such future excursions.
Now is the time to plan that international trip of your dreams. To make it easier to apply for a U.S. Passport, the Bridgewater post office is hosting a Passport Day with extended hours on Saturday, Jan. 14.
Just stop by the Bridgewater post office at 102 Mill Rd. between 12-3 p.m. on Jan. 14, no appointment is necessary. Postal clerks can even take your passport photo if you do not have one.
Bridgewater Postmaster Dori Trudeau said, “With routine passport processing taking six weeks it’s never too early to start planning for that out-of-country trip. And we’re here to help.” She cites USPS.com as an excellent resource for getting passport paperwork and locating other acceptance facilities across the nation.
The U.S. Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
