Houston Passport Offices
The number of United States passport offices has increased in
the past several years from 5,000 to over 7,000 locations. These can be
post offices, clerks of court, public libraries and other state,
county, township, and municipal government offices. The agents at these
offices are authorized by the U.S. government to witness the signing of

There are 30 Houston passport offices
where you can submit application Form DS-11 and other required
documents. You are only required to visit a passport office if you are
applying for a new passport. For other types of applications such as a

Houston Passport Agency
The Houston Passport Agency
attends to travelers who are booked to travel or submitting their
passports for foreign visas, within 14 days or 28 days, respectively.
The first step to apply at a passport agency is to schedule an
appointment through an automated service. This may require you to call
many times, especially during peak travel season.
After you make the appointment, you need to travel to the
agency location where you will be attended to. Once again, depending on
the time of year, you may find yourself waiting in long, crowded lines
to get your passport. Be sure to arrive at the passport agency 10 to 15
minutes before you appointment. Arriving late may result in the
cancellation of your appointment.
Houston Passport Expediting Services
If you are unable to schedule an appointment at the regional agency, or
if you don't want to spend precious time in potentially long lines, you
may employ the services of an experienced passport expediter.
Expediters are registered with the regional agency and maintain daily
appointments with them so they can get your application processed in as
fast as the same day. Additional fees apply on top of the government
