Passport Services in Seattle

Passport services in Seattle are available at application acceptance facilities, the regional agency and qualified expediters. Each one is described in more detail below. Get information about who should apply at each location, where to submit forms and how long it takes to process applications.

Seattle Passport Offices

Applications and supporting documents submitted at a Seattle passport office are reviewed by an authorized passport agent. The agent will administer an oath, witness the signing of the application form, place your form and documents in an envelope and seal it. You can then mail it directly to the processing center or to a registered expediter if you require this service.

Most application acceptance facilities are located in U.S. post offices although some are found in county clerks' offices and public libraries. There are quite a few places to choose from. Applicants are encouraged to call before visiting because a lot of facilities require an appointment or have limited operating hours.

It takes up to six weeks to process an application by routine processing. A request for expedited service will reduce the processing time to two or three weeks. Those who require passports more quickly can use one of the methods listed below.

Seattle Passport Agency

The Seattle Passport Agency processes passports for American citizens who need to travel abroad in 14 days or submit their passports for foreign visas within 28 days. The first step to applying at the regional processing agency is to schedule a visit by calling the automated appointment system.

During periods when the number of travelers increases significantly, setting up an appointment can consume a lot of time. You can also expect long lines at the agency during these times. 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.

Seattle 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 Seattle 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.
