Routine Passport Processing w/ the Government

There are 2 ways to get a passport: Routine or Expedited Processing

You can choose routine processing at your local passport acceptance facility, which takes between 4-6 weeks. See below for more details.

You can also expedite your passport application. Additional fees apply.

NOTE: Your passport Application Fees and Execution Fees are paid separately.

Expedited Processing w/ Registered Passport Courier

For an additional service fee, a Registered Passport Courier can secure your passport faster than the 2-3 weeks of processing time through your local passport acceptance facility. A trusted Registered Passport Courier can secure your passport as quickly as 24 hours.

The service fee to expedite your passport is between $79 and $399, on top of government fees.

Additional U.S. Passport Fees

Execution Fee: When applicable, an execution fee of $25 is also required.

An acceptance agent is needed to verify the signatures and identity of the applicant. This is usually the post office or county clerk. This is for ALL passport applications with the sole exception of an adult passport renewal.

Expediting Fee:
 The U.S. Department of State charges a $60 expediting fee.

This is paid in the form of a check – along with any of the listed passport fees above – made out to the U.S. Department of State.

Private Expediting Fee: If you need your passport faster than 3 weeks, you may want to pay a registered passport courier to secure your passport even faster.
