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

El Paso Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in El Paso, Tx.

Below is a list of places where you can apply for a passport in El Paso, Texas. There are less than 10 acceptance facilities in the city so we included a couple more. Be sure to call before visiting since many acceptance facilities require applicants make an appointment.

Applications for a new passport (Form DS-11) should be taken to a nearby passport application acceptance facility so that an agent can witness your signature. Applications for other passport services - renewalsname changes, and corrections, etc. - can be made by mail. For a list of acceptance facilities in cities other than El Paso, visit the Texas passport office page.

You will get your passport in about 8 to 11 weeks if you request standard service. It should arrive in 5 to 7 weeks if you request expedited service. Those who require a passport in less than 2 weeks can schedule an appointment at the El Paso Passport Agency or submit the application and supporting documents through a registered expediting service such as 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.

El Paso Passport Agency

The El Paso Passport Agency attends to travelers who are booked to travel or submitting their passports for foreign visas within 14 days or 28 days, respectively. The first thing you need to do when applying at a regional passport agency is set up an appointment through the State Department's automated service. It may be necesary to call several times, especially during peak travel season.

Once the appointment date and time are set, you need to arrive at the agency location a little early. Arriving late may result in the cancellation of your appointment. Once again, depending on the time of year, you may find yourself waiting in long, crowded lines to get your passport. After submitting your request, you will be asked to return at a later time to get your passport. This could be the same day or at a later date depending on your departure date and the volume of applications at the agency.

El Paso Passport Expediting Services

Can't get an appointment before your departure date? Don't have time to visit the regional agency? Then an El Paso passport expediter may be the best solution for obtaining your passport quickly. Expediters can have your application processed and your passport returned to you as fast as the same day in some cases.
