The City of Escondido will discontinue passport services as of January 1, 2014. People seeking to obtain passports in Escondido still may do so at the Main Post Office located at 1157 West Mission Avenue in Escondido. Information about other nearby acceptance facilities or passport services in general is available at www.travel.state.gov
The City of Escondido began providing passport services in 1997 as a convenience for residents because no other passport acceptance facilities were available in Escondido at the time. However, since passport services are available at the main post office in Escondido it is no longer necessary for local government to provide this non-traditional service.
