Emergency Passport

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.

For a list of required documents, please return to the Passport Index page and select the service you require from the list.  Application requirements, including fees, for emergency passports are the same as those for full-validity passports.
