  • Delay for New or Renewal Passports Significant

    Due to a wide range of circumstances, the average wait time for getting a new passport or renewing an expiring passport is very long.

Anyone in need of these services hoping to travel yet this fall or next spring should be taking action now and should absolutely select the expedited option if you can (standard wait time for ‘expedited’ is 12 weeks).
