Passport Services in Washington DC

There are many passport services in Washington DC including application acceptance facilities, a regional processing center and professional expediting services. Each one is described below with information about where and how to apply for a new passport.

Washington DC Passport Offices

When you submit the application for a new U.S. passport at a Washington DC passport office, an authorized agent will review the form and supporting documents, administer an oath, witness the signing of the application, put everything in an envelope (including your payment) and seal it. You should not open the envelope. You can then mail the envelope directly to the processing center or, if needed, to a registered expediting service.

Most, but not all, passport offices are located in United States post offices. Other locations include public libraries and government offices. Applicants have quite a few places from which to choose. You should call before heading to the facility since many require an appointment or have limited operating hours.

You should receive your new passport in about six weeks if you choose regular processing. You can get it in up to three weeks if you opt for expedited service through a passport office. For quick processing of your application, you need to use one of the options listed below.

Washington DC Passport Agency

The Washington DC Passport Agency assists American citizens who need to get a passport in 14 days or submit their passports for foreign visas within 28 days. It is necessary to schedule a visit to the regional agency by phoning an automated appointment system.

Periods of the year in which the number of travelers increases significantly result in congested phone lines and long lines at the processing center. It can be very time consuming to complete the process. If you are able to get an appointment scheduled prior to your departure date, plan to arrive at the agency early enough to get through the security checkpoint and arrive at the proper location for your appointment. Arriving late could result in your appointment being canceled.

Washington DC Passport Expediting Services

Applicants who are unable to schedule an appointment prior to their departure date may still be able to obtain their travel document by employing the assitance of a Washington DC passport expediter. Since expediters can submit applications on a daily basis, they can obtain same day passports for 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.
