             Meng to Hold Passport Event to
            Help Queens Residents Apply For                           Train to Grand Central Madison
                      or Renew a Passport

                 In order to make it easier for Queens residents to obtain
            passports, U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Queens) will host a pass-
            port event to help constituents apply for or renew a passport.
                 The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday,
            February 5, 2023 at the United States Post Office Flushing
            Main Street location, Suite 1, which is located at 4165 Main
            Street in Flushing, Queens. No appointment is necessary.
                 To receive a passport, an individual must be a U.S. citizen
            or non-citizen national, and they need to complete the applica-
            tion form which Postal Service clerks can assist with on-site.
            The required supporting documents must also be submitted
            and details can be found here.
                 “Whether traveling for a vacation, business, studying abroad
            or to see family members, a passport is essential for flying
            to another country,” said Meng. “As our borough continues
            to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are
            once again traveling and many are already planning trips for
            the summer travel season that is just around the corner. This
            passport service that I am pleased to offer will make applying
            for or renewing a passport easier and more convenient, and I
            encourage constituents to take advantage of it on February 5th.”
                 The following is what local residents should bring:
            1.   If applying for a first-time passport, bring an original copy
