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

McAllen Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in McAllen, Tx.

There are only a few McAllen passport offices where applications for a new passport (Form DS-11) can be submitted. Applications for other passport services - renewalsname changes, and corrections, etc. - do not require you to appear before an agent. After the application is adjudicated and placed in a sealed envelope along with the supporting documents, you need to mail it to the processing center.

You can expect to get your passport in approximately 6 to 8 weeks if there are no errors on the form and the supporting documents are acceptable. Otherwise, you can expect delays. Applicants who need to get passport quicker can request expedited service. This process takes up to 3 weeks. Those who need to get their travel document in 2 weeks or less can arrange a visit to the Houston Passport Agency. If an appointment is not available before your departure date or you do not have time to personally visit the agency, you can use the services of a registered expediter to get a passport in 24 to 48 hours.

For a list of acceptance facilities in cities other than McAllen, visit the Texas passport office page.

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 72 hours. Those with qualified life-or-death emergencies are prioritized.
