San Diego Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in San Diego, Ca.

There are many San Diego passport facilities when you consider the three different types: application acceptance facilities, regional agency and private expediting services. Below is a list of places where you can apply for a passport in San Diego, California. For fast, convenient expediting service, visit Rush My Passport for expedited passports in 24-48 hours.

San Diego Passport Application Acceptance Facilities

You only need to visit a nearby application acceptance facility if you are applying for a new passport. Otherwise, you can send your application by mail. For other cities besides San Diego, visit the California passport office page. Note, many application acceptance facilities only attend to applicants by appointment. Please contact the passport office before going.

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 18 weeks from the day the application is submitted to the day the passport arrives at your door. This timeframe includes up to 12 weeks of processing and up to 6 weeks for mailing.

Expedited service may take up to 12 weeks -- 6 weeks processing and an additional 6 weeks mailing 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
