COVID-19 Update: Safely Working for You

August 3, 2020

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect our workforce and customers, we significantly reduced passport operations in March 2020. We temporarily suspended expedited passport processing and restricted service to cases involving life-or-death emergencies. As global conditions evolve and U.S. states begin to reopen, we are resuming operations in phases. We ask for your patience as we safely work on your application.

As of Monday, August 3, a total of 6 passport agencies and centers are in phase two, and 12 agencies and centers are in phase one of our three-phase reopening plan. Go to our Passport Agency and Center page for more information.

You can apply at an acceptance facility or renew by mail now, but unless you have a life-or-death emergency, you will experience delays before receiving your passport and the return of your citizenship documents such as previous passports, and birth and naturalization certificates.

Learn more about our current state of operations and plans to reopen in phases on our COVID-19 Update page and our Frequently Asked Questions page.                  

Reminders

  • When printing the application, make sure the image of the application covers the entire page.
  • After using the Form Filler tool, do not make handwritten corrections to the form after you've printed it. The Form Filler tool will create a unique barcode for your application, and handwriting on the form (except to sign your name) will delay processing of your application
  • The Form Filler works best if you are in the United States or renewing by mail from Canada. Visit the webpage of the U.S. embassy or consulate if you are applying for or renewing your U.S. passport in another country. 
  • You must print your form single-sided. We do not accept double-sided forms.
  • You will not be asked to provide credit card information on this site. We don't have an option to pay online.

Most Common Forms for a U.S. Passport

You may fill out these forms using an online Form Filler or by downloading a PDF of the application. The Form Filler tool is a shared resource for 4 of our forms. It's common to enter your information and see a different form than you expected (for example, a DS-11 instead of a DS-82). The Form Filler will create the correct form for you based on the information you enter.
