San Antonio residents who need to apply for new passports now have another place to go. According to this article on Bizjournals.com, the San Antonio City Court Clerk’s office is now an official passport acceptance office. If you need to apply for a passport in person, you can now submit your application at the City Court Clerk’s office, in addition to the existing San Antonio post offices that provide the service.
Bizjournals.com quotes San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro:
“With the heavy level of travel expected this summer, I’m glad the city will help relieve the backlog and help San Antonians obtain passports in a convenient and timely manner.”
A passport acceptance facility is a passport office that accepts applications for both regular and expedited processing. Regular processing usually takes about 6 weeks. The expedited processing option takes about 3 week.
If you need your passport more quickly, you need to go to a Regional Passport Agency office, a passport office that is able to issue same-day passports. Regional Passport Agency offices are scattered throughout the country-if you’re in San Antonio, the nearest are in Dallas or Houston.
A more convenient way to get a passport in a hurry is to use a private passport expediting company. With an expediting company, you can simply go to the nearest passport acceptance facility to have your documents sealed. Then, you can send the documents to the expediting company and let them deal with the Department of State for you.
RushMyPassport.com will hand-deliver your application to the Department of State, for processing times as short as 24 hours. When you apply through us, you also get assistance from a trained, professional passport specialist who will answer all of your questions and walk you through the application process.
