  3. Processing Time and Return of Passport

Processing time for a full validity (10 year for adult, 5 year for children under the age of 16) U.S. passport is approximately 2 weeks from the date when we received your application and payment. If you request return of your passport by mail, your new passport will be sent to you with the TNT express mail service once processing has been completed. The delivery time is 24 – 48 hrs and the fee is 23,56 lei paid at the time of delivery. We will contact you by telephone or e-mail before sending your new passport with TNT.

Applicants who need to travel in less than two weeks may request a limited validity emergency passport. Same-day issuance is available for applications that are complete and straightforward. In some cases, if additional review is required, same day service may not be available.
