Akron Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in Akron, OH.

Akron passport facilities can be found in only a few places in the city. A few other options available to residents of Akron who want to apply for a passport are passport offices in neighboring cities, a regional agency and private expediting services. Below is a list of locations where you can submit a passport application if you live in Akron, Ohio. Note that many passport offices have limited operating hours and some require an appointment so be sure to call before you make the trip.

New passport application Form DS-11 can be submitted at a nearby passport application acceptance facility so that an agent can witness the signing of the form, administer an oath and seal the form and supporting documents in an envelope.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Mailing delays are impacting passport processing. The Department of State's processing times begin when applications are received at a passport agency or center and not when you mail them or apply at a local acceptance facility. Standard service may take between 7 and 10 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

Expedited service takes from 4 to 6 weeks exluding mailing times on the front and back end. Mailing delays may be significant so requesting 1-2-day mailing may greatly help.

Regional passport agencies are offering two types of appointments: Life-of-Death Emergency Service and Urgent Travel Service.

Life-or-death emergencies are serious illnesses, injuries, or deaths in your immediate family (parent, legal guardian, child, spouse, sibling, and grandparent) that require you to travel outside the United States within 3 business days.
