Malliotakis Reminds Individuals to Check Passports as Vacation Season Begins

NEW YORK – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) on June 1 reminded constituents to check their passports to avoid delays due to application backlogs as the summer vacation season begins. Since taking office, the congresswoman’s office has helped roughly 700 constituents who ran the risk of missing their travel plans obtain passports and renewals. She was among those who advocated that passport agencies return to pre-pandemic staffing levels to deal with backlogs. The Department of State announced the pre-pandemic staffing level took effect this week.

Malliotakis said: “Starting this week, passport agencies nationwide are returning to pre-pandemic staffing levels. While this will surely relieve some of the problems Americans have experienced with lack of responsiveness and delays, we anticipate that there will still be a backlog as agencies resume normal operations. I urge individuals to check their passports well in advance of any international travel to ensure that it is not expired and immediately complete an application or make an appointment if a new passport or renewal is required. As always, my office is here to assist residents of Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn with passports requests as we’ve helped more than 700 constituents renew their passports since taking office.”
