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

Federal Way Passport - Applying for a Passport in Federal Way, Wa.

The only passport office in Federal Way has closed so we listed application acceptance facilities in nearby cities instead. For more options, visit the list of Washington passport offices. Many facilities require an appointment. Please schedule one before visiting.

When you submit your application form, an acceptance agent will administer an oath and witnesses the signing of your application. The completed, signed form and supporting documents will be placed in an envelope with the payment. The total fee will depend on whether you select standard processing or expedited service.

Standard processing process is estimated to take up to 8 weeks. Expedited service can take up to 3 weeks. Applicants who require faster processing of application forms should schedule an appointment at the Seattle Passport Agency.

Those who need a passport quickly but are unable to personally visit the regional agency can seek the assistance of a registered expediting service such as Rush My Passport.

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
