What to Expect

  • Non-applicants (except parent(s) and legal guardians(s)) are not permitted in the waiting room, even if they are listed in the online application request. Learn more about third party attendees and passport interviews.
  • Passports generally take about three weeks to arrive. You will be notified by email when your new passport arrives.  Bring your old passport with you to pick up the new passport (unless the old passport is expired), so that we can cancel the old passport.
  • If you have an emergency, an emergency passport (EPDP) can be issued, usually on the same day that you apply but sometimes the following day.  EPDPs are valid for up to a year but may be exchanged within a year of issuance, for no additional fee, for a full-validity passport. Learn more about applying for an emergency passport.

If you need reasonable accommodation for your appointment, we encourage you to request your accommodation immediately once you schedule your appointment. We make every effort to provide accommodations to persons with disabilities and medical conditions. Reasonable accommodations vary, depending on the situation and the person’s needs.
Examples of accommodations include, but are not limited to:

    • If you require a private appointment due to a medical condition or disability, we may schedule an alternative time for you to come in for your interview.
    • If you or your child has special needs that requires a private appointment in a quiet space without distractions, we may schedule an alternative time for you or your family to come in for your interview.
    • If you are unable to speak, you may be allowed to respond to questions in an agreed-upon nonverbal manner such as using pen and paper.
    • If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you may bring a sign language interpreter to translate during the interview if needed.
    • If you have low vision, we may provide you with communications in large print.

If you are unable to provide fingerprints because of a medical condition, including birth defects, physical deformities, skin conditions, you may qualify for a fingerprint waiver for certain fingers.
