    Please Make An Appointment
    It is important to call and make an appointment with us. Though we have five staff members who are qualified to execute a passport, staff consistency and busy moments vary. In order to properly dedicate the time we need to review your passport and materials, we need to arrange this important meeting. Most appointments last no longer than 15-20 minutes per application.

    How Long It Takes
    Currently, routine passports take between 6 weeks to process. Expedited passports take approximately 2-3 weeks.

    More Inquiries
    The U.S. Department of State website is an excellent resource to find more answers or track your currently processing passport. Visit for more inquiries.
