Passport Services in San Francisco

There are many passport services in San Francisco including application acceptance facilities, a regional processing center and professional expediting services. Details about each is given below with information about when and how to apply at each one.

San Francisco Passport Offices

When you submit the application form DS-11 at a San Francisco passport office, an authorized agent will review your documents, administer an oath, witness the signing of the application form and place everything in an envelope and seal it.

Most passport offices are located in United States post offices although some are found in county clerks' offices and public libraries. There are a few locations to choose from. Be sure to call before visiting since some require an appointment or have limited operating hours.

Your new passport should arrive within six weeks if you request routine service or within three weeks if you ask for expedited processing at a passport office. For faster service, you need to use one of the methods described below.

San Francisco Passport Agency

The San Francisco Passport Agency only attends to applicants who need to travel or submit their passports for foreign visas within 14 days or 28 days, respectively. To apply at the processing center, you first need to schedule a visit by calling the automated appointment system.

During peak travel season, it can be time consuming to set up an appointment as well as wait in line at the passport agency. Make sure you arrive early so that you have time to pass through security and get to the agency. Arriving late could lead to the cancellation of your appointment and a delay in your processing.

San Francisco Passport Expediting Services

If no appointment is available prior to your departure date, you still might be able to get your travel document if you employ the assistance of a San Francisco passport expediter. Since expediters submit applications on a daily basis, they are able to get same day passports for their clients. This is a viable solution if you cannot submit the application yourself or if you just do not want to spend the time doing it.
