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

Renton Passport - Applying for a Passport in Renton, Wa.

The Renton passport offices in the table below are locations where American citizens can submit applications for new U.S. passports. These application acceptance facilities do not process the forms. Applications and supporting documents are sent to a processing center after being adjudicated. Estimated processing time is 6 to 8 weeks for standard service and 2 to 3 weeks for expedited service.

You will either have to visit the Seattle Passport Agency or, if you don't have time to do this, employ the services of a registered expediter if you need to obtain a passport in less than 2 weeks. Expediters can help you get a passport in 24-48 hours.

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 8 and 11 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

Expedited service takes from 5 to 7 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 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
