Where’s My Passport Application?

If you have an international trip planned, it’s absolutely essential that you have your passport before it’s time to leave. Since an international trip is such a major investment, waiting for your passport to come back to you in the mail can test even the most serene Zen master. To help you keep your cool, there are systems in place that will allow you to track your passport application as it makes its way through the US Passport Agency.  The tracking method differs depending on how you applied for your passport. If you submitted your application directly to the US Department of State, here’s what you need to do:

  • Go to the US Passport Agency’s website, and use this link to check the status of your passport online.
  • Enter in your last name. Include suffixes like “Jr” or “II,” but don’t include punctuation unless your last name is hyphenated.
  • Enter in your date of birth like this:  MM/DD/YYYY
  • Enter in the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number.

You should be aware that your passport application won’t be in the government’s tracking system until at least 5-7 days after you submitted it.

If you use a private passport expediting company to submit your passport application, make sure to choose a company that allows you to track your order.  For example, at, you can track your passport application using our online tracking system 24 hours a day using the tracking number we provide when you place your order.

    Hi Narayan,

    Since you’ve already applied, I would call the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778 and let them know your situation. Good luck!
