We request that anyone making a morning appointment have their application completed and ready upon arrival, along with proper forms of payment (see below for this information, or ask when setting the appointment), and all required documentation.

Current Passport Processing Times
Please keep in mind that the holiday season is peak time for passport applications to be submitted. Anticipate slightly longer mailing times to Processing Centers and to your address from the Processing Center.
Current Expedite Processing: Two to three weeks. If you are traveling in fewer than eight weeks, consider using Expedite Processing. This is an additional $60 per
application. Overnighting is also highly recommended to ensure fast delivery, especially
during peak mailing season.
Current Routine Processing: Four to six weeks. If you are traveling in more than eight weeks, please use Routine Processing.
Processing times for passports can increase with short notice. Please make every effort to apply for your passports as early as possible, and confirm processing time by visiting the US Department of State official website.
You can also cut off a two- to five-day mailing period by using the overnight option on books for an additional $20.66.
