The passport fair will run from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. and will operate on an appointment-only basis. To secure an appointment, interested individuals can sign up through the official website. Reservations will also come with the added benefit of free ground-level parking.

According to Broome County Clerk Joseph Mihalko, the after-hours passport fair is an initiative aimed at providing convenience for the local community. He stated, "Our office is holding this event as a convenience to our friends and neighbors around Broome County who need to obtain a passport but may not be able to come into our downtown Binghamton office during normal business hours."

The fair will take place at the Broome County Clerk's Office, located in the Broome County Office Building at 60 Hawley Street, Binghamton, NY 13901. During the fair, application forms will be readily available, and on-site photographers will be present to capture passport photos.

Additionally, passport cards will be available, though they are only valid for land and cruise ship travel. Adult passport cards are priced at $30, while children's passport cards cost $15.
