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.

Honolulu Passport Agency

The Honolulu Passport Agency only serves customers who are traveling, or submitting their passports for foreign visas, within 14 days or 28 days, respectively. To apply at the agency, you must schedule an appointment.

Recently, the New York Times published an article about passport processing. Charles Milton's well-planned vacation to England almost didn't happen because he only discovered his passport was missing 3 days before his departure date.

The article stated, "The next morning, three days before the trip, he called the State Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs, which issues passports. Mr. Milton soon found himself in a two-hour phone marathon, shuttled to six or seven extensions and, finally, being told that the soonest he could get a passport was 10 business days."

When Mr. Milton told the agent that he didn't have 10 business days to wait, he was informed of an alternative solution: a private passport expediter. If you are in an emergency situation, read on.
