Apply for Your U.S. Passport

The Passport Acceptance Program

Looking to apply for or renew your passport but don’t know where to start? Take care of this task right at the Bay Area Travel Adventure Show and you’ll also receive tickets to the event for free!

Sponsored by the San Francisco Passport Agency, you can apply for and/or renew your passport while you explore the Show finding your next trip.

How it Works

Simply fill out the form on the right side of this page to register. One week prior to the Bay Area Travel & Adventure Show, taking place on March 16th and 17th at the Santa Clara Convention Center, you will receive an email with a reminder of what you need to bring, as well as the check in process. We recommend registering immediately as the Passport Acceptance Program will sell out.
