If you are in a hurry to get your passport, you can apply at your closest Regional Passport Agency. There are 26 US Regional Passport Agencies around the country (listed below). However, Regional Passport Agencies require an appointment and spots fill up quickly. You will also be required to spend the day at the agency until your passport is ready. If you want your passport fast and you can’t get an appointment, or don’t wish to spend all day waiting at the agency, call us today at 877 503.9838 or place your expedited passport order online.
How to Make an Appointment at the Passport Agency
The first thing you should do is call the Automated Appointment System at 1-877-487-2778 and make an appointment. This automated phone appointment system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is no fee to schedule an appointment. However, passport agency hours vary from location to location. Make sure you coordinate your appointment with the proper agency. Be sure to check if the location is the closest Regional Passport Agency to you.
- Make sure you have all of the required documents upon arrival at the agency.
- Proof of travel is also required at most agencies so bring your itinerary with you. Electronic itineraries on your smartphone are not valid.
- There is an Expedited Fee of $60 required for each application submitted in person at a Passport Agency. The expedited fee is in addition to the regular passport fee.
In most cases, you will receive your passport within a few days or prior to your trip. You may be able to get it that day if your travel plans are more immediate. Passport agencies are only open Monday – Friday and are closed on all national holidays so plan accordingly. You will also want to factor in drive times and spending the day at the agency.
An appointment is required to apply at a Passport Agency or Center. Call the National Passport Information Center 24/7 at 1-877-487-2778 to schedule an appointment.

Using a Passport Expediting Company
If you need a passport sooner than a Passport Acceptance Office or the post office, but you can’t (or don’t want to) go to a regional passport agency, it may be worth considering using a private passport expediting company. A registered passport expediting company will take your application to the Department of State, where it will be processed in as little as 7 business days. The company will then ship your new passport back to you, usually overnight. Not only does using an expediting company reduce the time needed to receive a United States passport, it also lessens the chance of errors that could delay your application. If there’s a setback at the passport office, the expediting company can inform you immediately so that corrections can be made, and your passport can be in it’s way to processing and back to you in time for your trip.
