Citing budget sequestration, the U.S. Department of State's passport agencies will not participate in Saturday's Passport Day but the town of Rocky Mount will.
The Rocky Mount Municipal Building at 345 Donald Ave. will host the annual passport event from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday.
The day offers a chance for people to apply for or renew their passports without having to make an appointment or come in during normal business hours.
Stacey Sink, passport program manager at the municipal building, said passport applications will be accepted Saturday on "a walk-in, first come, first served basis."
Passport photograph services will be available for a $10 fee.
Credit and debit cards are not accepted. Fees to the Department of State should be paid by check or money order. Fees to the town of Rocky Mount should be paid by check or cash.
Applicants without a valid Virginia driver's license should be prepared to present additional forms of identification.
Information about the cost and how to apply for a U.S. passport is available from the Department of State at travel.state.gov or by calling the National Passport Information Center at 877-487-2778.
Sink said it is not clear how many people might show up Saturday at the Rocky Mount Municipal Building for Passport Day.
"We ask that applicants come prepared, come early and remain patient throughout the process," she said.
