San Juan Passport Office to reopen
SAN JUAN — Just over five months after the impact of Hurricane Maria, the Passport Office at the Minillas Government Center in San Juan will reopen Feb. 28, after sustaining damage from the September storm.
Resident Commissioner Jenniffer González made the announcement, saying she helped the deputy secretary of State for Passport Services, Brenda Sprague, have the office’s service resume.
According to a written statement, San Juan’s Passport Office was forced to stop operations due to the lack of electric service. This resulted in the center lacking the security system to safeguard documents.
The office will operate from Monday to Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Those interested in obtaining their passport for international travel or visas can request an appointment by calling 1-877-487-2778.
Starting April 2, Passport applications (form DS-11) will cost $35.
