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

Santa Barbara Passport - Applying for a Passport in Santa Barbara, Ca.

There are only a couple of Santa Barbara passport offices so we listed places located nearby where you can also apply for a new American passport. An agent will adjudicate the application form so that you can send it to the processing center. The process takes up to 11 weeks to complete. If you request expedited service, it can be done in up to 7 weeks.

Getting a passport faster requires you either schedule an appointment and personally visit the Los Angeles Passport Agency or, if you don't have time to do this, employ the services of a registered expediter who can help you get a passport in 24-48 hours.

You can locate passport offices in other cities by visiting the California passport application acceptance facilities 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.
