Arcata California Passport Offices

Applications can be submitted at the Arcata California Passport Office to get new, first-time passports as well as the replacement of ones that have been lost, stolen or damaged. Renewals and name changes can be requested by mail without the need to present your application and supporting documents to an acceptance agent.

Those who apply at a passport office in Arcata can select either rountine processing in 4 to 6 weeks or expedited passport service with an estimated processing time of 2-3 weeks. There is an additional fee of $60 to expedite the application. Faster service is available at the nearest regional agency where applications can be processed as quickly as the same day.

Please call before visiting an application acceptance facility since most have limited operating hours and/or require an appointment. A list of locations in other California cities is provided at the bottom of the page. Since there is only one application acceptance facility in Arcata, we have listed places to apply in nearby cities.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Standard processing takes 10 to 12 weeks to complete. If you pay the additional $60 for expedited service, you will receive your passport in 4 to 6 weeks.

Regional passport agencies are offering extremely limited in-person services if you need to travel internationally in the next 72 hours. Those with qualified life-or-death emergencies are prioritized.

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 72 hours (3 business days).
