Important Due to Covid-19, processing times for passports are taking longer than normal for both standard and expedited services.

Bellevue Passport - Applying for a Passport in Bellevue, Wa.

The addresses of Bellevue passport offices are provided below. Since there are only a couple of application acceptance facilities in Bellevue, we have included places in nearby cities where you can apply as well. Many facilities require an appointment. Please call or schedule an appointment online before visiting.

More than a hundred Washington passport offices exist where residents of the state can submit application form DS-11 in order to obtain a U.S. passport.

After the acceptance agent administers an oath and witnesses the signing of your application, it will be placed in an envelope with supporting documents and payment to the Department of State. The total fee will depend on whether you select standard processing or expedited service.

Standard processing service is estimated to take up to 8 weeks. Expedited service can take up to 3 weeks. Applicants who require faster processing of applications should schedule an appointment at the Seattle Passport Agency.

Those who need a passport quickly but are unable to personally visit the regional agency can seek the assistance of a registered expediting service such as Rush My Passport.

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.

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 A.M. to 8 P.M. ET, call 1-877-487-2778 (TDD/TTY:1-888-874-7793) Outside of these hours, call 202-647-4000.

For Urgent Travel Service, you need to call 14 days before your scheduled international travel or 28 days if you also need to secure a foreign visa.

If you need to travel urgently for reasons other than a life-or-death emergency, please call the NPIC at 1-877-487-2778 Mondays through Fridays 8 A.M. to 10 P.M. ET.
