Where can I get a passport on Saturday in Massachusetts?

by Ed
(Melrose, Ma)

Question: My 16-year-old daughter needs a passport. Where can I get passport photos made and get the actual passport?


Answer: There is nowhere in Massachusetts where you can actually get a passport on Saturday if you mean that you want to receive the travel document on the same day that you apply.

There are several passport application acceptance facilities near Melrose where the application form and supporting documents can be submitted. All these Massachusetts passport offices list operating hours for Saturdays and on-site photos. Since operating hours vary and some facilities require an appointment, we recommend you all first. The addresses are provided below.

Malden Post Office
109 Mountain Ave
Malden, MA 02148
(781) 322-0667

Stoneham Post Office (by appointment)
345 Main Street
Stoneham, MA 02180
(781) 438-3124

Medford Post Office (by appointment)
20 Forest Street
Medford, MA 02155
(781) 396-2444

Wakefield Post Office
321 Main Street
Wakefield, MA 01880
(781) 245-3831

Routine processing takes 4-6 weeks to complete. You can request expedited service at the time you apply in order to get the passport in 2-3 weeks. If your daughter needs her passport faster, you need to schedule an appointment at the Boston Passport Agency or employ the services of a registered passport expediter.
