Find a Passport Agency Near Me

One way that you can get a passport in a hurry is to apply in person at a regional passport office. There are 26 regional passport agency locations in major cities across the United States. In order to apply for a passport at a regional office, you will need to make an appointment by calling the National Passport Information Center at 877-487-2778. You will also need to have proof that you need a passport urgently, such as a flight itinerary showing a departure within two weeks (or within four weeks if you must also get a travel visa). If your departure is in less than 5 business days, or if you have documentation of a life-or-death emergency overseas, you can get emergency service and will be able to pick up your passport at the regional passport agency. If your departure is farther out, your completed passport will be sent to you within 5 business days.

How to Apply for a Passport at a Regional Passport Office

Before you go:
When you arrive:
  • Arrive before your appointment time. You will need time to clear security and check in.
  • Go through the security line, where you will need to show your identification and have your belongings inspected.  No weapons are allowed at the regional passport agency.
  • Check in at the Information Desk. Provide your appointment confirmation number or Social Security Number to verify your appointment. The Information Desk will then give you a number for service.
  • Have a seat in the waiting area and wait for your number to be called. When your number is called, you will be directed to one of the windows for service.
