Nephew needs a passport but his parents cannot take time off.

Question: My nephew (15 years old) and I are traveling to Europe in August and I need to get him a passport. Both his parents have started new jobs and work Monday - Friday and have long commutes from two very different cities. Are there any places in the San Francisco Bay area that have Saturday hours?


Answer: There are a couple of locations in San Francisco where an application for a passport can be submitted on Saturdays. They are listed below. Most require an appointment.

Marina Station
2055 Lombard St.
San Francisco, CA 94123
(415) 351-1875

San Francisco P&DC Finance
1300 Evans Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94188
(415) 550-5211

It is also possible for you to accompany your nephew and submit the application. Besides the normal requirements, you would need to submit a notarized statement or affidavit from both parents granting you permission to do this. Click the link below for a complete list of requirements.
