Important Due to Covid-19, processing times for passports may take up to 18 weeks for routine service and 12 weeks for expedited processing.

Ballico California Passport Offices

Applications can be submitted at the Ballico California Passport Offices for 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 Ballico 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.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Mailing delays are impacting passport processing. The Department of State's processing times begin when applications are received and not when you mail them. Standard service may take up to 18 weeks from the day the application is submitted to the day the passport arrives at your door. This timeframe includes up to 12 weeks of processing and up to 6 weeks for mailing.

Expedited service may take up to 12 weeks -- 6 weeks processing and an additional 6 weeks mailing on the front and back end. Delays may be significant so requesting 1-2-day mailing may greatly help.

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).

If you need to travel due to a qualified life-or-death emergency, please call the National Passport Information Center for an appointment.

Mondays through Fridays 8 AM to 5PM, call ET 1-877-487-2778 (TDD/TTY:1-888-874-7793) Outside of these hours, 202-647-4000
