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

Delaware Passport Acceptance Facility List

There are currently less than 20 Delaware passport offices. At least one application acceptance facility can be found in Kent, New Castle and Sussex counties. The largest number of facilities is located in Wilmington. Other locations are listed below. Telephone numbers are provided since many require an appointment. Some places provide passport photo service on site.

Regular processing is estimated to take from 4 to 6 weeks. You can request expedited service which takes up to 3 weeks to process. There is an additional fee for this service. Applicants who need to get a passport in less time can schedule an appointment at the Washington DC Passport Agency or the Philadelphia Passport Agency. Don't have time to visit the regional agency? You can apply through a qualified expediting service in order to get your passport expedited in 24 to 48 hours.

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.
