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

Locations to Apply for a Passport in Clearwater, FL

Applying for an American passport can be done at one of the Clearwater passport offices and locations in nearby cities listed below. An agent at a passport office will adjudicate the application form so that you can mail it in for processing. Routine service takes between 6 and 8 weeks to complete. Requesting expedited service can reduce the processing time to up to 3 weeks. Be aware that most acceptance facilities require an appointment so be sure to call or schedule an appointment online before going.

To get a passport more quickly, you will either have to schedule a visit to the Miami Passport Agency or, if no opening is available, get a registered expediter to submit your application for you so that you can get a passport in 24-48 hours.

Passport offices can be found in other Florida cities by visiting our Florida passport application acceptance facilities page.

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 8 and 11 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

Expedited service takes from 5 to 7 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 extremely limited in-person services if you need to travel internationally in the next 5 business days. 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 5 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

You can schedule your appointment up to 2 weeks before your international travel but the date of your appointment must be within 5 business days of your international travel. If you need a foreign visa, the date of your appointment must be within 10 business days of your international travel.
