Busy Winter Travel Season Expected to Delay Passport Processing Times

 

With the busy holiday travel season right around the corner, the U.S. Department of State is encouraging U.S. citizens to apply for or renew their U.S. passports now if making plans for winter travel. The DOS is currently experiencing lower average passport processing times than it will once the winter season arrives. 

Applicants traveling in more than three weeks may apply at a passport acceptance facility, such as a post office, library or a clerk of court. Routine service averages a four- to five-week turnaround, while expedited service averages two to three weeks. Expedited service does require an additional $60 fee.
