Need a U.S. Passport Immediately?

You should make an appointment to be seen at a Regional Passport Agency only if:

The U.S. passport is needed in less than 2 weeks for international travel
The U.S. passport is needed within 4 weeks to obtain a foreign visa
Contact the National Passport Information Center to make an appointment or locate a Passport Agency.

go to :

http://travel.state.gov/passport/npic/npic_898.html

https://passportappointment.travel.state.gov/

I also made an appointment online. It's a long overdue option. I discovered that new appointments post at midnight, for the newly added day. I waited until midnight, and was able to pick any time I wanted in NY. Game changer.

and make a appointment you will get it the same day or the next day , (depends when you are flying) .



If you need an expedited appointment call l 1-877-487-2778 at 8 AM SHARP EST. Press 1 1 2 2 to speak to a live rep to schedule you an expedited appointment.
Trick is to press the last 2 at 8AM, rather than starting the call at 8AM. I had 2 people try it this morning- one pressed "2" at 8AM and had no hold times and got an appointment for today. The second called at 8AM, had a 30 min wait, and was told that the closest they have available is in VT.

What did you end up doing?
Read above, seems like he did standard and took advice to expedite as time approaches.
  I sent it in on the 31of march. Got it back on May 3rd. So just about a month.
 Mailed it from NJ. As I know NY has a different address to send to. So not sure if turn around times are different.

Emergency passport question: I have a friend who’s father passed away in Israel on Shabbos. She has a newborn with no passport. Is there anything that can be done before Monday morning?

They’re currently in the US. They have a passport appointment in DC tomorrow morning. I’m assuming that’s the best we can get.

Hi y’all! I was following this thread to see what to do about an expedited passport, I tried last night and some random appointments opened up for the next morning and were gone before I could get my hands on them, but I called this morning and got an appointment for friday in the morning, however there were no appointments for same day..

Thanks for all the info!

From my personal experience:
I applied for a passport, 1 renewal & 1 first time, both kids, appointment was by Ocean County office in Lakewood on 4th St.
We got the passport in less than 3 weeks. I didn't paid for expedited service.

I couldn't readily find a topic for this..... For a couple living in Israel - Any way to expedite an ISRAELI passport (after already applying)? Sister of a Choson getting married in US. Her newborn baby is awaiting a passport to arrive.
(As an aside; they tried getting him an American passport but were told being he is a 3rd generation American citizen, he needs to get his passport in the US not at the consulate in Israel). Any help appreciated!
