Passport agents will check your documents, administer an oath and witness the signing of your DS-11
application for a new passport. Once the agent seals the envelope you

form and supporting documents. You can mail the package directly to the
processing center or send it to a qualified expediter if you need to
rush the process.

expedited service which takes 3 weeks or more. If you need your
passport faster, you will have to acquire it through a regional
passport agency or a private expediter. See below for more information

Tucson Passport Agency
The Tucson Passport Agency
attends to travelers who are booked to travel in 14 days or submitting
their passports for foreign visas within 28 days. The first thing you
need to do when applying at a regional passport agency is set up an
appointment through the State Department's automated service. It may be
necessary to call several times especially during peak travel season.
Once the appointment date and time are set, you need to arrive
at the agency location a little early. Arriving late may result in the
cancellation of your appointment. Once again, depending on the time of
year, you may find yourself waiting in long, crowded lines to get your
passport. After submitting your request, you will be asked to return at
a later time to get your passport. This could be the same day or at a
later date depending on your departure date and the volume of
applications at the agency where you apply.
Tucson Passport Expediting Services
Can't get an appointment before your departure date? Don't have time to visit the regional agency? Then a Tucson passport expediter
may be the best solution for obtaining your passport quickly.
Expediters can have your application processed and your passport
returned to you as fast as the same day in some cases.
