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

Connecticut Passport Agency Expedited Services

The Connecticut Passport Agency provides same-day and next-day passport processing for U.S. citizens and foreign residents who are scheduled to travel abroad within 14 days. To get your passport expedited at the Connecticut Passport Agency, you first need to schedule an appointment.

If you are not traveling or needing to submit your passport for a travel visa within 14 days, you must apply at a Passport Acceptance Facility.

Don't have time to schedule an appointment and visit the regional agency? Apply through a registered expediting service to get your passport expedited in 24 to 48 hours.

From May 8- July 30, 2017, the parking lot at the rear of 850 Canal Street will be under construction and parking will be extremely limited. Please use mass transit, if possible. More information.

Processing Times

Passports are issued according to travel plans. Same-day passports are issued in emergency situations.

*This agency only issues the U.S. passport book on-site.

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 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
