What if I need it sooner than six weeks?

If your departure is sooner than eight weeks, we recommend that you utilize the "Expedite Service" which is 5 to 7 week turnaround ($60 extra charge per applicant and consider express delivery service. Please inquire at time of application for overnight return delivery information). 


If you go directly to one of the Passport Offices located in Stamford, Connecticut or New York City, you should get your passport within 8 business days. You must also have all the items listed on our Application Requirements page. You also need proof of travel plans. Call the centers before you appear. You must have proof of departure and you must have an appointment. Call 877-487-2778 to make the arrangements.
