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

Applicants in need of obtaining passports in under two weeks can either schedule an appointment at the Buffalo Passport Agency or, if this is not possible, employ the assistance of an experienced passport expediting service.

Buffalo Passport Agency

The Buffalo Passport Agency only attends to United States citizens who are traveling, or submitting their passports for foreign visas within 14 days or 28 days, respectively. You can get your passport the same day if necessary at the regional agency. You will need to present evidence of urgent travel.

To apply at the regional agency, you first need to schedule an appointment. Applicants should arrive 5-10 minutes early at the processing center so that they have adequate time to pass through the security check and get to the correct location. Arriving late could result in the cancellation of your appointment. Double check your form and supporting documents to make sure they are according to the requirements. Taking unacceptable documents could result in delays in the process.

Buffalo Passport Expediting Services

Buffalo passport expediting services are registered with the regional agency of the United States Department of State. Expediters can be authorized to submit passport applications for United States citizens who do not have the time nor desire to do so themselves. They can get your passport processed and delivered the same day in some situations and, more frequently, within 24-48 hours. If you have an emergency and need to obtain your passport quickly, use a passport expediting service.
