Washington, D.C. – On Saturday, July 29, Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) will host an event for Ventura County residents to make sure their passports are up to date for the summer travel season.

Staff from the Los Angeles Passport Agency will be on hand to renew old passports and receive submissions from first-time applicants at the Passport Fair, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Grant R. Brimhall Library at 1401 E. Janss Road, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362.

“The summer season is well underway, and I want to make sure everyone in Ventura County who is considering traveling abroad can get their passports as easily as possible,” said Brownley. “The State Department is expecting over 20 million passport applications this year alone, and over 45 million passports will expire between 2016 and 2018. This will mean longer processing times, for both regular and expedited passport requests.”

Representatives from Brownley’s district office have urged anyone interested in attending to bring passport photos and proper documentation. They will also be at the Passport Fair to answer any questions.

For more details, call Brownley’s district office at (805) 379-1779 or visit juliabrownley.house.gov.
