Customers will normally receive their passports within 8 weeks from receipt of completed applications by the Passport Agency. For an additional fee, those wishing to receive their passport sooner may request expedited service. Expedited service guarantees processing within 7-10 business days from receipt of complete applications by the Passport Agency.

NOTE: The processing time for a passport can vary based upon the volume of applications received at the Passport Agency. It is not uncommon, during high volume months, for processing to take up to 10 weeks for a completed application and up to 3 weeks for expedited service.
