Please note: There is no walk-in service for United States citizens who require a service related to passports, citizenship or birth registration.  These services are by appointment only.

If you have immediate travel plans and have not been able to set an appointment online before your departure date, please contact the American Citizen Services to request an emergency appointment.

The regular processing time for a new passport is 7 – 10 business days from the time of the application. If you have urgent need of travel and there is insufficient time in which to process a full-validity U.S passport, you may apply for an emergency, limited-validity U.S. passport.  You may also apply for an emergency passport if your application for a full-validity passport is still pending and you have urgent travel within the next 2 business days.

Inclusion of a Social Security Number or an Application for a Social Security Number is now required for all passport applications.
