Important Due to Covid-19, processing times for passports may take up to 18 weeks for routine service and 12 weeks for expedited processing.

Fort Walton Beach Passport Offices

You can apply for a new passport at one of the Fort Walton Beach passport offices or facilities in nearby cities that are listed below. An agent at the 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 and not when you mail them. Standard service may take up to 18 weeks from the day the application is submitted to the day the passport arrives at your door. This timeframe includes up to 12 weeks of processing and up to 6 weeks for mailing.

Expedited service may take up to 12 weeks -- 6 weeks processing and an additional 6 weeks mailing on the front and back end. 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
