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

Pittsburgh Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in Pittsburgh, Pa.

The number of passport offices in Pittsburgh has decreased significantly over the past couple of years. All but one are located in post offices. Acceptance agents at these facilities receive applications and supporting documents for new passports from American citizens. Most require an appointment.

It is only necessary to visit one of these locations if you are submitting application Form DS-11 for a new passport. Applications for other passport services - renewals, name change, and corrections, etc. - can be submitted by mail.

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

It takes up to 11 weeks for an application to be processed. Applicants can request the application be expedited if they want to get their travel document in 5 to 7 weeks. Those who require rush service in order to get the application processed in less than 2 weeks to as fast as the same day can schedule an appointment at the Philadelphia Passport Agency or employ the services of a registered expediter such as Rush My Passport - Online Passport Service.

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 7 and 10 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

Expedited service takes from 4 to 6 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 two types of appointments: Life-of-Death Emergency Service and Urgent Travel Service.

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 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 A.M. to 8 P.M. ET, call 1-877-487-2778 (TDD/TTY:1-888-874-7793) Outside of these hours, call 202-647-4000.

For Urgent Travel Service, you need to call 14 days before your scheduled international travel or 28 days if you also need to secure a foreign visa.

If you need to travel urgently for reasons other than a life-or-death emergency, please call the NPIC at 1-877-487-2778 Mondays through Fridays 8 A.M. to 10 P.M. ET.
