Important Notice to Applicants
Due to high volume and systems issues, approximately 3.8% of passport applications received between June 5 and July 15 are experiencing processing times beyond the normal 4-6 week timeframe for routine applications.
If you applied for your passport before July 1 and have not received it, and you are traveling in the next 2 weeks, please contact the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778 for assistance.
We apologize for the inconvenience and are working hard to process all passport applications within the stated timeframes.
