United States Passport book with epassport symbolQuestion: What is the price for getting a passport in 14 days?

Answer: There are two ways to get a same-day passport. One, you can schedule an appointment at the San Francisco Passport Agency and apply in person.

Applying for a same-day passport this way will cost $110 for the application fee, $35 for the execution fee and $60 for the expedited service fee for a total of $195. This does not include expenses for travel, parking, passport photo and other items that can increase the total cost of expediting a passport.

Another way to get a same day passport is to apply through a registered expediting service. Expediters have a daily quota of applications which they can submit. They can often get same day passports when an appointment is not available to an individual.

Note, if you are applying for a new passport using Form DS-11, you still need to take the form, supporting documents and two authorization letters to an application acceptance facility in San Francisco where an agent will verify your documents, administer an oath and witness the signing of the application form.

If you are not in the San Francisco area, you can find an agency here or a local passport office here.

Then, you can either mail the sealed package to the expediting service you have chosen or personally deliver it to their office. You must send one authorization letter inside the sealed envelope and another outside it.

The expediter we recommend is They have offices in several major U.S. cities including San Francisco.

Fees vary depending on how quickly you want to get your travel document. They do offer same day passport expediting. This does not include government fees. For more information about their expedited passport service and corresponding fees, click the link below.
