Where Can I Get A Passport?

There are several places where you can go to apply for a passport in person. These are not necessarily the same as the places where you can go to get a passport photo. While you can get a passport photo from many stores and pharmacies, you will need to visit an official passport agency or acceptance facility if you want to apply for your passport in-person.

Some places where you can get a passport can include a local library, county clerk offices, post offices, and other local or state government offices. You can find a local passport acceptance facility by searching on the U.S. Department of State’s website.

Your local passport agency will be able to accept your application and, in some cases, take passport photos. You will not receive your passport the same day, though. The passport acceptance facility will take your application and send it to the Department of State.

After you have submitted your application in-person, you can expect to receive your passport via mail within 6 – 8 weeks. It can take longer if there are unexpected delays due to something like a national emergency.

 

Challenges with Getting a Passport In-Person

There are several reasons that getting a passport in-person is a hassle. First, many of the places that offer passport services have limited hours. You may need to take time off work to make it on time or wait in long lines on the weekend at your local passport acceptance facility.

Secondly, passport agencies cannot do much to make sure you get your passport in time for your next trip. If you need to receive your passport by a specific date, the best they can do is offer expedited shipping for an added cost. With expedited shipping, you can expect to get your passport within 15 business days.

Finally, passport acceptance facilities do not offer the same level of customer service as an agency like Signature Passport. They may not be able to answer all your questions or help you with personal assistance if an issue arises after your passport application has been submitted to the Department of State.
