It takes generally 4-6 weeks for the National Passport Agency to process your application. Expedited service is usually 2-3 weeks. I recommend that if you are leaving in three months or less, then you expedite your process. This way if the State Department has any problems with your application, you will have time to make the necessary corrections or obtain additional documentation before your trip. I mail applications every day at 4:00 P.M.

If you have any questions regarding the applications process, please give me a call at (251) 743-2283. As of February 1, 2004, all passport applicants must appear in person. (Including minors under age 16.) Also, as of 2-1-2008, any minor under the age of 16 requires the consent of both parents.

The most of the above information is for application for a first time adult passport. There are some special rules for children and/or minors so we ask that you contact us ahead of time and let us explain what is required for obtaining their passport.
