Planning to Travel? Apply Early!
If you need a passport to travel, apply at least six months before planned travel. Routine passport service can take up to 18 weeks from the day an application is submitted to the day a new passport is received. The 18-week timeframe includes up to 12 weeks for processing and up to 6 weeks for mailing times on the front and back end.
Mail times vary and delays have been significant. Please plan ahead.
