Bell Gardens Passport Application Acceptance Facilities

Quote by Abraham Lincoln from Gettysburg Address on inside page of United States Passport.
The passport offices in Bell Gardens, California are listed below along with a few in nearby cities. These passport application acceptance facilities are locations where American citizens apply for new passports. Other facilities can be found on the list of passport offices in California. Most passport offices require an appointment. Please call before visiting.

Applicants are required to appear before an official passport agent when submitting Form DS-11. The agent reviews documents, administers an oath and witnesses the signing of the application. When mailing your application from one of these facilities, you can choose between regular and expedited processing. The address to which you send the packet will depend on the service you choose. Both addresses are listed on the form.

Standard service takes an estimated four to six weeks while expediting only takes two to three weeks. There are a couple of alternatives for applicants to need to get a passport in a hurry.

You can schedule an appointment at the Los Angeles Passport Agency or utilize the expertise of a registered expediter such as Rush My Passport to get a passport as fast as the same day.

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
