Additional Information

Additional information may be required based on specific circumstances. Please visit the U.S. Department of State website for more information.

Apply Early

The application processing time begins the day the U.S. Department of State receives your application, not the day it was processed at our facility.

Apply at least six months before planned travel. Due to limited availability, the U.S. Department of State cannot guarantee you can receive in-person service at a passport agency or center. The U.S. Department of State is prioritizing customers with life-or-death emergencies. You can visit their Passport Agency and Center to learn more.

Mail Delays

Mail delays are impacting when the U.S. Department of State receives passport applications. Processing times begin the day your application is received, not the day it was mailed. 

It may take up to 6 weeks from the day your application is submitted until the status changes to "In Process." During these 6 weeks your application is delivered to a mail facility, your payment is processed, and your application is entered into the U.S. Department of State’s system.

Even if your passport has a status of “not available,” your application and supporting documents are being delivered to the U.S. Department of State Agency or Center. Check online for your passport status.
