Secure your emergency passport within 24 hours

There are 2 options when applying for emergency passports:

1. Registered Passport Expediting Services

2. Making an appointment at a Regional Passport Agency.

Remember to explore all of your options for an emergency when you need your passport immediately. A Registered Passport Expediting Service can get your passport to you in 24-48 hours.

While a Regional Passport Agency can get you an emergency passport, you will first need an appointment. Also, Regional Passport Agencies have a processing time of 5 days, according to the U.S. Department of State.

Option #1: Registered Courier Service

So, to find out if you qualify for expedited passport services, view our quick passport flow chart. Importantly, your emergency passport will be in your hand within 2 weeks, or as quickly as 24-48 hours if necessary.

When you’re ready, see Expedited Passport Service and Fastport Passport for more information.

Option #2: Schedule an Appointment at a Regional Passport Agency

Additionally, there is another option for an emergency passport: appearing at the regional passport agency in person. You can find Regional Passport Agencies across the country.

  • Importantly, every Regional Passport Agency requires an appointment. Since you need an appointment, it may not be the best option for an overnight or next-day passport. If there is an appointment available, you can visit a Regional Passport Agency and expedite your emergency passport.
  • To proceed, you can visit Regional Passport Agencies to find an agency near you along with specific information about it. In addition, you can contact the U.S. Department of State by phone at 877-487-2778.

According to the U.S. Department of State, Regional Passport Agencies take up to 5 days to process an emergency passport.
