How long does it take to expedite a passport?

Published by Travel Visa Pro on Tue Sep 12 2017

Trying to get a passport at the last minute can be a huge hassle even for veteran travelers. With everything going on prior to an international trip – hotel reservations, multiple flight plans, tour groups, etc. – having valid travel documents may be the last thing on your mind. After all, a US passport book is valid for ten years for adults and it’s not always easy to remember what you were doing a decade ago.

Expedited Passport Time

The normal passport processing time for a renewal or first-time application can take several weeks to process depending on where you apply – directly at the US Department of State in Washington DC or authorized passport agencies across the country – and whether there is currently a backlog. Both these options offer expedited service for an additional fee, but there is no standard processing time; some agencies are able to provide this document within a few business days, but others at different times of the year may only guarantee processing within 2-3 weeks.
