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

Lincoln Passport - Applying for a Passport in Lincoln, NE

Lincoln passport offices are listed below along with facilities in nearby cities. Quite a few Nebraska passport application acceptance facilities exist where American citizens can submit form DS-11 and supporting documents to apply for a new passport. Most passport offices require an appointment. Please call or set an appointment online before visiting.

Routine processing takes up to 8 weeks. Expedited service is estimated to take up to 3 weeks. Schedule an appointment at a regional agency or utilize the services of a registered expediter such as Rush My Passport to get your passport in 24 to 48 hours.

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 8 and 11 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

Expedited service takes from 5 to 7 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 extremely limited in-person services if you need to travel internationally in the next 5 business days. Those with qualified life-or-death emergencies are prioritized.

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 5 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 AM to 5PM, call ET 1-877-487-2778 (TDD/TTY:1-888-874-7793) Outside of these hours, 202-647-4000

You can schedule your appointment up to 2 weeks before your international travel but the date of your appointment must be within 5 business days of your international travel. If you need a foreign visa, the date of your appointment must be within 10 business days of your international travel.
