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

Reno Passport Offices

There are only a few places in Reno where American citizens can submit applications for new passports. Most require an appointment. We recommend you only visit an acceptance facility without an appointment if you are unable to contact them by phone. Facitilies in other cities within the state can be found on the Nevada passport offices page.

Expect to wait up to 11 weeks to receive your passport. If you request expedited service, you should get it in 5 to 7 weeks. It is possible to get a passport faster by applying at a regional agency. The closest agencies are located in Los Angeles and San Francisco. An appointment is required.

Those who are unable to personally visit one of the regional agencies can employ the services of a registered 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 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.
