Important Due to Covid-19, processing times for passports are taking longer than normal for both standard and expedited services.

Kansas City Missouri Passport Offices

There are currently 8 passport offices in Kansas City, Missouri. Most are located in post offices. Many require an appointment. Please call before visiting. If you are looking for a passport office in another city other than Kansas City, please visit our Missouri Application Acceptance Facility page.

Citizens of the United States are required to appear in person when applying for a new passport. It takes up to 11 weeks to process an application for routine service and up to 7 weeks if the applicant requests expedited service. For emergency situations (departure within 14 days or need to submit passport for a foreign visa within 28 days), you either have to make an appointment at the Arkansas Passport Center in Hot Springs or the Chicago Passport Agency.

Those who cannot travel to one of the regional agencies can employ the services of a registered expediter such as Rush My Passport.

COVID-19 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 7 and 10 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

Expedited service takes from 4 to 6 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.
