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

Golden Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in Golden, Co.

There are only a few passport offices in Golden, Colorado. These are locations where American citizens who live in or near Golden can submit applications for new passports. More passport offices near Golden have been added to the list in order to provide applicants with more options in which to apply. Acceptance facilities often require an appointment so please call or schedule an appointment online before visiting one of the offices.

Processing time is estimated to require up to 8 weeks to complete for standard service. Applicants can request expedited service for an additional fee and get their passports in 2 to 3 weeks.

Those who need to get passports in less than two weeks can schedule a visit to the Colorado passport agency in Aurora. Those who do not have time to personally visit the agency can use the services of a registered passport expediter. For emergency expediting services, we recommend Rush My Passport - Online Passport Service.

Golden Passport Offices

The passport application form DS-11 can be submitted along with supporting documents to an authorized agent at the nearest Golden passport office. The agent will review the documents, administer an oath and witness the signing of your application. Applications for passport renewals, name changes and the corrections of typing errors can be submitted by mail. For a list of acceptance facilities in cities other than Golden, visit the Colorado passport office page.

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
