Please note that the U.S. Department of State has extremely limited U.S. passport operations and is prioritizing processing applications for life-or-death emergencies. Currently, it can take up to 18 weeks from the day you submit your application to receive your passport. For information about timelines, please visit the Department of State's website.

Appointments can be booked up to two weeks in advance.
