Knoxville Passport - Applying for a Passport in Knoxville, Tn.

The Knoxville passport offices below are places where American citizens can submit an application for a new United States passport. These are not processing centers so your passport will not be delivered to you at these locations. The form and supporting documents will be mailed to a processing center. This takes up to 8 weeks for routine service and up to 3 weeks for expedited service. Many acceptance facilities require an appointment so be sure to call before visiting.

Getting a passport faster requires you either schedule an appointment and personally visit the Atlanta Passport Agency or, if you don't have time to do this, employ the assistance of a registered expediting service can help you get a passport in 24-48 hours.

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.
