San Diego Extends a Helping Hand to Flood Victims with Passport Fee Waiver

San Diego Extends a Helping Hand to Flood Victims with Passport Fee Waiver – In a compassionate move, the San Diego City Council has unanimously greenlighted a fee waiver for residents whose U.S. passports were lost or damaged due to the severe weather and flooding that ravaged the region in late January 2024. This decision aims to alleviate the financial strain on those impacted by the natural disaster.

No More $10.50 Passport Photo Fee for Eligible Residents

Typically, the city charges $10.50 for passport photos, but this fee will be waived for those who qualify under the recent major disaster declaration. By eliminating this administrative hurdle, San Diego demonstrates its commitment to supporting residents during their recovery journey.

Who Qualifies for the Passport Fee Waiver?

The U.S. State Department’s guidelines allow for passport replacement fees to be waived for individuals who held a valid passport at the time of the disaster and had their document damaged or lost due to the catastrophic events.

To take advantage of this fee waiver, applicants must submit a new passport photo along with their application.

Streamlining the Process for Disaster Victims

“Waiving passport photo fees for those affected by this natural disaster is vital, easing financial strain and administrative hurdles during recovery,” stated a city official. “This act of support ensures equal access to essential documentation and demonstrates the city’s commitment to assisting residents during this time of crisis.”

The State Department’s website provides detailed eligibility criteria, ensuring transparency and accessibility for all applicants.

Assistance Available for Application Process

Recognizing the potential challenges faced by disaster victims, the city has made provisions for those requiring assistance in completing the necessary forms. Residents can visit the Office of the City Clerk during business hours at the City Administration building (202 C St) or request an appointment by calling 619-533-4000 or visiting https://www.sandiego.gov/city-clerk/inforecords/passport.
