Indianapolis Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in Indianapolis, In.

Although Indianapolis has more passport offices than any other city in Indiana, there are less than 10 locations throughout the city. Below is a list of places where American citizens can apply for a new passport in Indianapolis, Indiana. The majority are located in post offices and many of these require an appointment. Call ahead or schedule an appointment online before making the trip. For a list of acceptance facilities in cities other than Indianapolis, visit the Indiana passport office page.

Applications submitted at these locations take 8 to 11 weeks to process. A request for expedited service can get your application processed in 5 to 7 weeks. For faster processing, you need to schedule an appointment at a regional agency or apply through a registered expediting service.

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 6 and 9 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

Expedited service takes from 3 to 5 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.
