WEEKLY COLUMN: Passport clinics being held throughout the riding

Week of July 17, 2017

Summer in the Kenora riding is a treat for anyone who has experienced it. There is no shortage of activities to participate in and the scenery is amongst the most beautiful in the world. It’s also a great time to sit out on a patio and plan your winter getaway. One of the first items on your travel to-do list should be: check your passport. If you’ve never had a passport, now is the perfect time to apply, or, if it expires soon, you should consider renewing.

A passport clinic is a one-stop shop for all your passport needs. Whether you need to apply or renew, there will be staff on-hand to guide you through the process. Currently, we have three scheduled for August with more to come. No appointments are needed, simply stop by and we’ll guide you through the application process.

On Tuesday, Aug. 8, I will be at the Dryden Legion from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. On Wednesday, Aug. 9, we will be in Sioux Lookout at the constituency office located on the second floor of the Centennial Centre. We’re then going to Kenora on Thursday, Aug. 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Norman Community Club. We’re also planning to hold a passport clinic in Red Lake later this summer or early in the fall.

We will have an on-site photographer available to take passport photos for $20 (cash only). Having a photographer in attendance allows the application process to run more efficiently.

You may renew your passport at any time up to one year past the expiration date of your current passport. It is advised to renew before they expire as you cannot travel with an expired passport. It is also less expensive and burdensome to keep your passport up to date.

Youth will need a child passport up until the age of 16. If the youth has a child passport and turns 16, they can continue using it until it expires. A parent or guardian must fill out the application when requesting a passport for a child under 16.

To help with the specifics of each application, I’ve included detailed instructions on the /BobNaultMP Facebook page. If you have any questions in advance of the passport clinics, I encourage you to reach out to my constituency office at 1-866-710-0008.

I am looking forward to seeing you at the passport clinics in just a few short weeks.
