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

Where to Apply for a Passport
in Lexington, Kentucky

There are only two passport application acceptance facilities in Lexington, Kentucky. We have included a few more in nearby cities to provide applicants with more options. Note, most acceptance facilities require an appointment. Please call or set an appointment online before visiting.

Regular processing service can take up to 11 weeks while expedited processing is estimated to take from 5 to 7 weeks. If you have urgent travel needs, you can schedule an appointment at a regional passport agency. If you do not have time to personally visit one of the agencies, you can authorize a registered expediter such as Rush My Passport to submit the application on your behalf.

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.
