APPLY NOW TO AVOID DELAYS!
We encourage applicants to submit their passport applications well ahead of their planned travel dates to ensure they get their passports in time.
Processing times begin the day an application is received at a passport agency or center, not on the day the customer applied for a passport at an acceptance facility. Door-to-door timeframes are no longer being used to calculate our estimated routine and expedited service times. Mail times may vary across the country.
