Washington Passport Offices

Once you have all your documents and ready to start the process, you can visit a passport office nearby to submit them. The processing options are dependent on how quickly you will need a passport. For the routine or standard process, you provide your papers and wait 4 to 8 weeks before you get your new passport in the mail. Normal processing is the cheapest way to get a passport when compared to the other options. The next choice is when you cannot wait four weeks to get a new passport. But with this option, you must provide proof of travel within the next two or three weeks. Evidence of travel can be your flight itinerary. Once approved, you will get it in 2 to 3 weeks. The cost will increase due to rush processing.

Regional Agency or Private Expeditor

For those who must travel in less than two weeks and need their application to be expedited, a regional passport agency or an expeditor can help. Before you visit either, you must provide more documents than the one accepted at the post office. Here is a list of the papers:
  1. Passport form
  2. Supporting documents
  3. Proof of travel
  4. Two letters of authorization (only for an expeditor)
  5. Company letter (just for a business trip)
  6. Emergency proof (for an emergency trip)
  7. Pay cost (passport, execution, and service fees)
A regional agency requires you get an appointment by calling the National Passport Information Center hotline number. You will get the next available time at the Seattle Passport Agency. Unlike the agency, an expeditor does not need an appointment or a face-to-face meeting. You can submit your documents by mail if necessary. Both options are the most anyone will pay to get a new passport in a short time.
