How long will it take to receive my passport?

The Passport Agency will have your passport processed in 4 to 6 weeks. If you need your passport earlier, you may expedite for an additional $60 plus $15.89 for overnight delivery (overnight delivery is not available for passport cards).

To check on the status of a submitted application, visit the U.S. Department of State's Passport Page or call the National Passport Information Center at 877-487-2778 (TDD users: 888-874-7793). This is a toll free service.
