Where can I go to have additional visa pages on the same day?

by Melissa

Question: Can I go to the processing center in Philadelphia, or is there a center I can go to in Washington, D.C. or New York to get additional visa pages for my passport?

Answer: There are regional passport agencies located in Philadelphia, New York and DC where you can apply for additional visa pages. Note, you first have to schedule an appointment and have proof of urgent need to travel.

To set up the appointment, call the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778. Lines can be congested during this time of year so it may take several attempts to get through. Also, the agency may not have an opening within the time frame you require.

If you cannot get through or there is no opening available before your departure date, you have two options. One, you can visit the nearest regional agency without an appointment. There is no guarantee that you will be attended to but it is possible. We have never heard of anyone being turned away but, again, there is no guarantee.

Two, you can apply through an experienced passport expediting service. Expediters have a special relationship with the regional agencies that grants them permission to submit applications for same day passport services. If you are interested in this service, click the link below.

UPDATE: Starting January 1, 2016, Passport Services no longer issues additional visa pages. This is to improve the security of U.S. passports.
