Jersey City Passport - Applying for a Passport in Jersey City, NJ

Locations of Jersey City passport application acceptance facilities are provided below along with passport offices in nearby cities. Numerous New Jersey passport offices exist where residents of the state can apply for a new passport by submitting application form DS-11 and required supporting documents.

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 18 weeks from the day the application is submitted to the day the passport arrives at your door. This timeframe includes up to 12 weeks of processing and up to 6 weeks for mailing.

Expedited service may take up to 12 weeks -- 6 weeks processing and an additional 6 weeks mailing on the front and back end. Delays may be significant so requesting 1-2-day mailing may greatly help.
