Please note that your passport MUST be valid for 6 months AFTER THE END of your time abroad.
If you are eligible for a US passport but do not have one or need to renew it, please visit travel.state.gov/ for information. Additionally, the Office of Global Services will host a Passport Drive on April 15th from 10am-2pm at 561 LaGuardia Place. Click here to register for an appointment.
Currently the processing time for routine applications is approximately 6 weeks from the time of application. The processing time for expedited service is about 3 weeks door-to-door, when overnight delivery is requested and paid for both ways. For more information please see Passport Processing Times.
If you do not have two weeks to spare, you can instead go to the US Passport Agency to request a passport within a few business days. For a Passport Agency near you and for more information, please refer to their website. If you are applying at a Passport Agency because you need your passport faster than 3 week expedited service, please contact the Office of Global Services (email@example.com) as you will need a letter to accompany your application.
If you are not a US citizen and need to renew your passport, please contact your country’s embassy or consulate.
