How to Get a Passport Locally

On this page, you’ll learn how to get a passport locally.

How to Get a Passport Locally

There are many ways to get a passport.

The most common way is routine processing through your local passport acceptance agent, (e.g., your local post office or county clerk) in 4-6 weeks.

If you submit incorrect documents or submit your paperwork with discrepancies, the U.S. Department of State may delay or deny your U.S. passport application.

Routine Processing @ Passport Acceptance Facilities

Need your passport a bit faster than the routine processing? You can expedite your passport locally. Your local passport acceptance facility may be able to expedite your documents with 3 week service. Again, there are no guarantees with that option. There is an additional $60 government expedite fee applied to each passport application.

Please see our page about Expedited Passport Services for details about our partner – Fastport Passport – and its even faster service.

Apply for a Passport at a Regional Passport Agency

Moreover, you can also get a passport locally at a Regional Passport Agency if you live in a major city. Depending on your situation, you may be able to get a passport faster than 3 weeks. You’ll need to make an appointment. If you cannot get an appointment, you will not be able to secure your passport locally in an expedited manner.

Passports can be expedited through a private expediting agency. Generally, a private passport expeditor can secure your passport as fast as 24 hours. However, please do your research and choose a highly qualified and highly trusted passport expeditor, as there are many options to choose from when securing your passport.

NOTE: If you need help selecting the best option for you, please feel free to contact us or use our Passport Flow Chart.
