Washington, D.C. — Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke (NY-09) released the following statement for those applying for a passport: 

PASSPORT SERVICES

Applying for a passport can be a challenging and stressful experience. To avoid any unforeseen circumstances, I recommend planning ahead and applying early.

As of April, the current processing times following a passport application are as follows:

Routine Service: 8 to 11 weeks

Expedited Service: 5 to 7 weeks

Please note, processing times begin the day Passport Services receives the application at a passport agency or center, not the day the application is mailed or submitted. 

To check the status of your passport application, please visit: passportstatus.state.gov with the following information:

Last name on application 

Date of birth 

Social Security Number (Last Four Digits)
