How to Make an Appointment

We have temporarily removed our online appointment booking system to ensure our very limited, in-person appointments at one of our agencies or centers go to applicants who need them for urgent travel.

You can schedule an appointment by calling the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778 (TDD/TTY 1-888-874-7793) from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. ET, Mondays through Fridays (excluding federal holidays). One of our customer service representatives will help you book an appointment at the nearest passport agency or center that has availability. 

If you have a life-or-death emergency, you may be eligible for an appointment. Learn more about how to make a life-or-death appointment.

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.
