Current Passport Processing Times
Currently, the U.S. Department of State (DOS) is processing passport applications in 8-11 weeks for routine processing and 5-7 weeks for expedited. While these speeds are a slight improvement over the last two years, they could still present a challenge for many travelers due to significantly slower processing speeds than in recent years.
Since 2020, the DOS has processed approximately 14 million fewer passports than previous years. Now, as international travel begins to ramp up, the number of people looking to get their applications processed are likely to be at an all-time high. Therefore, if you or your family are looking to travel internationally, you should be aware that a potential backlog in passport processing could cause further delays due to the volumes of applications being submitted.
One way to combat this challenge, of course, is to ensure you have at least 6 months of validity remaining on your U.S. passport. In fact, many countries will restrict access if your passport is set to expire in less than 6 months.
Mistakes with passport validity, coupled with the current processing times at the DOS could place your next international trip in jeopardy. If that isn’t alarming enough, consider the fact that approximately 30% of all passport applications sent to the DOS are suspended due to the application not being filled out correctly, inaccurate forms of payment, the photo being non-compliant, or a variety of other common issues.
