The State Department updated current passport processing times, showing reduced wait times for both routine and expedited services.
Additional Information: It may take up to two weeks for applications to arrive by mail at a passport agency or center, and then an additional two weeks or more to receive a completed passport in the mail. These mailing times are not included in the processing times described above.
BAL Analysis: The decrease in wait times is welcome news, especially following significant delays over the summer. Requests for passports tend to increase ahead of holiday travel, however. Applicants should expect delays as the holidays approach and plan accordingly.
This alert has been provided by the BAL U.S. Practice Group.
