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

Houston Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in Houston, Texas

There are 31 passport offices in Houston where citizens of the United States can apply for new passports. Renewals can be requested by mail. Locations of acceptance facilities are listed below. Please call before visiting since most offices maintain specific hours.

Standard processing takes up to 8 weeks and expedited service up to 3 weeks. Schedule an appointment at the Houston Passport Agency or employ the services of a registered expediting service if you need to get your passport in under 2 weeks.

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 14 weeks from the day the application is submitted to the day the passport arrives at your door. This timeframe includes both processing of the application and delivery time.

Expedited service may take up to 10 weeks from the day an application is submitted to the day a new passport is received. These door-to-door timeframes include both our processing times and mailing times 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

Visit Rush My Passport - Online Passport Service to get your passport quickly.

Houston Passport Agency

The Houston 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 step to apply at a passport agency is to schedule an appointment through an automated service. This may require you to call many times, especially during peak travel season.

After you make the appointment, you need to travel to the agency location where you will be attended to. Once again, depending on the time of year, you may find yourself waiting in long, crowded lines to get your passport. Be sure to arrive at the passport agency 10 to 15 minutes before you appointment. Arriving late may result in the cancellation of your appointment.

Houston Passport Expediting Services

If you are unable to schedule an appointment at the regional agency, or if you don't want to spend precious time in potentially long lines, you may employ the services of an experienced passport expediter. Expediters are registered with the regional agency and maintain daily appointments with them so they can get your application processed in as fast as the same day. Additional fees apply on top of the government fees.
