There are two ways to get your passport: Routine or Expedite

  1. You can choose routine processing which takes 4-6 weeks. Standard government fees apply. This process is completed by visiting a local passport acceptance facility.
  2. The other way to get a passport is to expedite the passport application. There are three ways to expedite a passport based on how fast you need it and availability. Additional fees apply.

    Additional Fees

    Acceptance Agent: When applicable, an acceptance agent 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 and adding passport pages.

    Expediting Fee:
    The U.S. Department of State charges a $60 expediting fee. This is paid along with the passport fee above, in the form of a check, made out to the U.S. Department of State.

    Private Expediting Fee: If you need your passport faster than three weeks, you may want to pay a registered passport courier to secure your passport even faster. These fees are paid directly to the registered passport courier in addition to the government fees listed above.
