Apply for Your Passport

SH-Get-Passport.ashxPassport processing times have increased due to high volume! Apply early!

Passport production is now at a record high. Be prepared for longer than expected processing times for your application in the face of record-breaking demand.

Routine passport service is currently backlogged and is now taking AT LEAST 10-12 weeks to be processed. Expedited passports should be processed in 2-3 weeks. Apply as early as possible or you may not receive your passport in time to study abroad!!

If Your Passport Has Been Delayed:

  1. First, check the status of your application online at www.travel.state.gov/passport
    (NOTE: Currently, it is taking 7-10 days for applications to be tracked online, less if the application was expedited. Please allow at least that time before checking the status of your application.)
  2. Then, email or call the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778 for help.
