There may even be some long queues in which one has to wait for their turn. If it is time to get a new passport you will need to be absent from work so that all the passport work can occur.
When one has a valid excuse for being absent from work such as getting passport work done, they will compose an excuse letter that will need to be submitted to their employer. This letter will inform them why they need to miss work.

Re. Excuse for Being Absent from Office due to Passport Work
It is stated that I cannot attend the university as I have to appear before the manager of the passport office Portland. I had applied for a foreign scholarship recently for my post-doctorate, but the grant was denied because of some technical faults in proceedings. I went to the USA to attend a conference on Medical Sociology in Houston. At that time, I did not know the legal statutes related to government employees’ policy on foreign trips.
I went to attend the conference during summer vacation, that is why I did not feel the need to inform the institution and there was no intrusion for me neither at the airport custom services nor on my return to Portland. I stayed there for two months and resumed my work at the university on a regular basis.
Now I am called for an International Conference on Medical and Mental Sociology in Toronto, Canada. Recently, I came to know the legal proceedings and statutes about government employees’ policy on foreign trips. The conference can play a vital and crucial role in my career, that is why I feel it significant to visit the conference.
I applied for the changes in my passport according to government employees’ passports. The manager from passport office Portland sent me an email yesterday directing to call on Manager of the passport office by tomorrow at 10 a.m. My prompt meeting can result in an immediate solution to my problem in the passport, so I feel I should call on Mr. Nervine, the Manager, tomorrow.
I hope, you shall understand the problem and the crucial need for leave. I shall be thankful if you grant a one-day leave for 18th April 20XX.
I pay my regards and thanks in anticipation.
