How much is a same day passport?

Question: What is the price for getting a passport in 14 days?

Answer: There are two ways to get a passport in two weeks. One, you can apply in person at the San Francisco Passport Agency.

In order to do this, you are required to schedule an appointment.

The fees you will pay to get a passport the same day include an application fee, execution fee, and expedited service fee.

Current passport fees

These fees do not include additional costs of getting a passport such as travel to the agency, parking, passport photo and other items that can increase the total cost of expediting a passport.

Aleternatively, you can get a passport in two weeks by applying through a registered expediting service.

Expediters have a daily quota of applications which they are allowed to submit to a regional agency. Therefore, they can often get a same day passport 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 near you where an agent will verify your documents, administer an oath and witness the signing of the application form.

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 of it.
