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

Tacoma Passport - Applying for a Passport in Tacoma, Wa.

Americans citizens can submit applications at the Tacoma passport offices listed below if they are applying for a first-time passport, renewing a passport issued to a minor age 15 or younger or replacing a passport that was lost, stolen or significantly damaged. These services require the applicant to appear in public and submit evidence of U.S. citizenship and proof of identity along with a passport photo.

Applying through a passport office in Tacoma can take up to 8 weeks to process. This can be reduced to 3 weeks if you request and pay for expedited service. Passports can be issued in less time if you schedule an appointment at the Seattle Passport Agency. The agency only receives applications from those can provide evidence of travel within 30 days.

Those who are unable to visit the Seattle agency can get a passport quickly by employing the services of a registered expediter such as Rush My Passport.

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.
