COVID-19 Update: Know Before You Apply For A U.S. Passport

If you are thinking about applying for or renewing a U.S. passport now for international travel, please read the Department of State's current international travel advisory. Because of public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have extremely limited U.S. passport operations.

If you apply or renew now, you will experience significant delays of several months to receive your U.S. passport and the return of your citizenship evidence documents (such as birth certificates or naturalization certificates). Unless you have a life-or-death emergency, please wait until we resume normal operations to apply for or renew your passport.

Learn more on our COVID-19 Update page and our Frequently Asked Questions page.                  

This is not an online application. The following passport wizard will prepare you to apply for a U.S. passport, whether it’s your first time applying, you need to renew, or you want to get a passport for your child. 

We encourage you to carefully read and follow all instructions given by the wizard to avoid delays in processing. You cannot submit an application for a U.S. passport online at this time.

Please note that completing the wizard does not entitle you to a passport.
