New York Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in New York City

There are many places to apply for a passport in New York City including application acceptance facilities, a regional passport agency and registered passport expediting couriers. The method you use to submit your application will depend on how quickly you need to get a passport.

Currently, there are more than 600 passport offices in New York state with a little less than 30 in New York City. Most passport offices require an appointment. Please call before visiting.

When applying at one of the application acceptance facilities, an authorized agent will review the passport form and supporting documents, administer an oath and witness the signing of the application. The completed form, supporting documents and payment for the application fee will be placed in an envelope and sealed. It should be addressed according to the processing time you choose. Routine processing is estimated to take up to 8 weeks. Expedited service takes up to 3 weeks.

Those who need to get a passport in a hurry can schedule an appointment at the New York Passport Agency on Hudson Street. Individuals who need to expedite a passport quickly but are unable to visit the regional agency can employ the services of a registered passport expediting courier 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 and not when you mail them. Standard service may take up to 14 weeks from the day the application is submitted to the day the passport arrives at your door. This timeframe includes both processing of the application and delivery time.

Expedited service may take up to 10 weeks from the day an application is submitted to the day a new passport is received. These door-to-door timeframes include both our processing times and mailing times on the front and back end. 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.

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

New York Passport Agency

The New York Passport Agency only serves customers who are traveling or submitting their passports for foreign visas within 14 days or 28 days, respectively. To apply at the processing center, you must schedule a visit by calling the automated appointment system.

During peak travel season, it can be time consuming to both set up an appointment as well as wait in line at the passport agency. You should plan to arrive early in order to pass through security before being directed to the agency. Arriving late could result in your appointment being canceled.

New York Passport Expediting Services

Applicants who are unable to schedule an appointment prior to their departure date may still be able to obtain their travel document by employing the assitance of a New York passport expediter. Since expediters can submit applications on a daily basis, they can obtain same day passports for clients. This is a viable solution if you cannot submit the application yourself or if you just do not want to spend the time doing it.
