Hilton Passport Project

Hilton Passport Project

Through the Hilton Passport Project, Hilton Hotels & Resorts is partnering with the U.S. Department of State to help get more people traveling in 2018. If you currently need a U.S. Passport, need to renew your passport or would like to get a free passport photo, please see below for more information.

Saturday, February 24  (10:00am – 5:00pm):

Stop by the Hilton Passport check-in desk located in Hall-JK of the convention center to set up your passport appointment during the LA Travel & Adventure Show for Saturday. We will accept first time applications and renewal applications for adults and children.  All applicants with an appointment will get free admission into the show and Hilton will provide complimentary passport photos. 

Sunday, February 25 (10:00am – 5:00pm):

Visit the Hilton Passport Booth on the exhibition floor to obtain information about U.S. passports and receive complimentary passport photos provided by Hilton.  Passport applications will not be accepted on this day, however, this is a perfect opportunity to ask questions, get an application and take a new free passport photo.  You’ll walk away ready to apply!

Ready to get your passport? Here is what you need to bring to the show:

  • Customers applying for passports should bring personal checks to this event.
  • Credit cards will also be accepted, but we will not be able to accept cash.
  • *Fees vary depending on the customer’s age and the type of application form required.

New Passports

  • Adults and children applying for the first time and individuals who lost their last passport, should bring the following items with them to the show:
    • Completed DS-11 application form (available online at Travel.State.Gov and will be available onsite. Tip: we recommend filling this form out at home to avoid wait times)
    • Original proof of U.S. citizenship (original birth certificate, previous U.S. passport, consular report of birth, naturalization certificate, certificate of citizenship);
    • Valid photo identification (driver’s license, state-issued ID card, student IDs, employment ID, etc.).
    • Both parents must attend for a minor child’s application.   If one parent cannot attend, they will need to send a notarized DS-3053 (less than 90 days old) and a copy of the front and back of the ID used at the time of the notarial service
    • A personal check to cover the passport application fees.

Passport Renewals

  • Customers who apply for an adult passport renewal (last passport must have been a 10-year passport) should bring:
    • Completed DS-82 application form (available online at Travel.State.Gov and will be available onsite. Tip: we recommend filling this form out at home to avoid wait times)
    • Previous 10-year passport
    • A personal check to cover the passport application fees.

Things to know:

  • Passports and original documents will be returned to customers in two separate packages by mail within approximately three to four weeks.
