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

Chicago Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in Chicago, IL.

The Chicago passport office list below has locations where citizens of the United States can submit applications for new passports. You do not have to live in Chicago to apply at one of these application acceptance facilities. Processing can take up to 11 weeks unless you request expedited service. Most facilities require an appointment. Please call or schedule an appointment online before visiting.

There are currently 30 Chicago passport offices. Passport agents in these offices are authorized by the government to witness the signing of your DS-11 application for a new passport. They also send in your application to the appropriate regional agency for processing if you choose this route.

You are only required to apply in person if you are applying for a new passport. For other services, you can send in the application by mail. Processing can take up to 11 weeks for regular service or up to 7 weeks if you want the application expedited. For quicker service, you can apply at the regional agency or through an expediter.

For fast, convenient expediting service, visit Rush My Passport - Online Passport Service.

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.
