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

There are many San Francisco 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 Francisco, California. There are only a few so we included facilities in nearby cities. For fast, convenient expediting service, visit Rush My Passport.

San Francisco 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 Francisco, visit the California passport office page.

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

San Francisco Passport Agency

The San Francisco Passport Agency only attends to applicants who need to travel or submit their passports for foreign visas within 14 days or 28 days, respectively. To apply at the processing center, you first need to schedule a visit by calling the automated appointment system.

During peak travel season, it can be time consuming to set up an appointment as well as wait in line at the passport agency. Make sure you arrive early so that you have time to pass through security and get to the agency. Arriving late could lead to the cancellation of your appointment and a delay in your processing.

San Francisco Passport Expediting Services

If no appointment is available prior to your departure date, you still might be able to get your travel document if you employ the assistance of a San Francisco passport expediter. Since expediters submit applications on a daily basis, they are able to get same day passports for their clients. This is a viable solution if you cannot submit the application yourself or if you just do not want to spend the time doing it.
