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

Wellesley Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in Wellesley, Ma.

The Wellesley passport office list below are locations where American citizens can submit applications for new passports. It is not necessary to reside in Wellesley to apply at one of these application acceptance facilities. Processing can take up to six weeks unless you request expedited service. For fast, convenient expediting service, visit Rush My Passport - Online Passport Service.

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 8 and 11 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

Expedited service takes from 5 to 7 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 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

Your completed, but unsigned application (Form DS-11) and supporting documents should be taken to a nearby passport application acceptance facility in order to be adjudicated by an agent. Applications for other passport services - renewals, name change, and corrections, etc. - can be sent by mail.
