Passport Services in Tucson, Arizona

United States citizens and non-citizen nationals who reside in or near Tucson can apply for a U.S. passport by three different means. The method that you use will depend on how quickly you need to get a passport. The details below will provide you with the information you need to determine which is the best way for you to apply for your passport.

Tucson Passport Offices

The number of passport offices in the United States has increased signficantly over the past several years from about 5,000 to over 7,000 authorized application acceptance facilities. Post offices most frequently serve in this capacity although many municipal, county and state goverment offices do as well. You might even find one in a public library.

Passport agents will check your documents, administer an oath and witness the signing of your DS-11 application for a new passport. Once the agent seals the envelope you should not re-open it. Make sure you include the payment with the form and supporting documents. You can mail the package directly to the processing center or send it to a qualified expediter if you need to rush the process.

There are fewer than 5 Tucson passport offices where you can have your application adjudicated. Of course, this is only necessary if you are submitting form DS-11. For other types of applications such as a renewal or name change, it is not necessary to present the application to an agent.

You can apply for regular service which can take up to 6 weeks or expedited service which takes 3 weeks or more. If you need your passport faster, you will have to acquire it through a regional passport agency or a private expediter. See below for more information about these two methods of getting a passport.

Tucson Passport Agency

The Tucson Passport Agency attends to travelers who are booked to travel in 14 days or submitting their passports for foreign visas within 28 days. The first thing you need to do when applying at a regional passport agency is set up an appointment through the State Department's automated service. It may be necessary to call several times especially during peak travel season.

Once the appointment date and time are set, you need to arrive at the agency location a little early. Arriving late may result in the cancellation of your appointment. Once again, depending on the time of year, you may find yourself waiting in long, crowded lines to get your passport. After submitting your request, you will be asked to return at a later time to get your passport. This could be the same day or at a later date depending on your departure date and the volume of applications at the agency where you apply.

Tucson Passport Expediting Services

Can't get an appointment before your departure date? Don't have time to visit the regional agency? Then a Tucson passport expediter may be the best solution for obtaining your passport quickly. Expediters can have your application processed and your passport returned to you as fast as the same day in some cases.
