Important Due to Covid-19, processing times for passports may take up to 18 weeks for routine service and 12 weeks for expedited processing.

San Diego County Passport Offices

Skyline of San Diego California
San Diego county passport application facilities are listed below. There are 36 California passport offices in San Diego County where residents of the county can submit form DS-11 in order to apply for a new passport.

At least one passport office is located in the majority of cities in San Diego county. If the city or town in which you live does not have one, you can probably find one in a neighboring city. Most passport offices require an appointment. Please call before visiting.

At the San Diego facility, an authorized agent will review your application and supporting documents, administer an oath and witness the signing of the form. Afterwards, these items will be placed in an envelope with payment and sealed. The address to which your passport application is sent depends on the processing time you choose.

Standard processing is estimated to take up to six weeks. A request for expedited service should reduce processing time to two to three weeks if no additional documents are required. Those who require express passport service in less time have the following alternatives to choose from:

One, the application form and supporting documents can be submitted at the San Diego Passport Agency. An appointment is required. Two, those who are unable to personally visit the regional agency can employ the services of a registered expediter such as Rush My Passport. Expedited processing by either method can be completed in a few days to as quickly as the same day.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Mailing delays are impacting passport processing. The Department of State's processing times begin when applications are received and not when you mail them. Standard service may take up to 14 weeks from the day the application is submitted to the day the passport arrives at your door. This timeframe includes both processing of the application and delivery time.

Expedited service may take up to 10 weeks from the day an application is submitted to the day a new passport is received. These door-to-door timeframes include both our processing times and mailing times on the front and back end. 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
