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 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.

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 toset 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.
