The U.S. Department of State warns that mail delays are significantly impacting processing times for passport applications. Routine service can take up to 16 weeks from the day you submit your application. Expedited service can take up to 12 weeks.
"Now that more overseas destinations are opening to travelers, this is the perfect opportunity to apply for your passport. In today's busy society it is often difficult for working individuals and families to apply for passports during the school and work week,” Clerk Timmann explains. “This special Saturday event provides a convenient opportunity for U.S. citizens to complete their passport applications. Our office will have trained staff available to assist with passport photos and applications, and to answer any questions.”
