The U.S. State Department has provided updated processing times for routine and expedited passport services.
Additional Information: Processing times do not begin the day an application is mailed but when the State Department receives the application. It may take two to four weeks from the day the application is mailed for the status of the application to state “In Process.”
Some applications may be delayed because the State Department requests additional information. Applicants must respond to such requests in order for processing to resume. More information regarding requests for more information is available here.
BAL Analysis: U.S. citizens intending to travel abroad and in need of a new passport should renew their passport as soon as possible to avoid delays and complications. Employers and employees should continue to consult their BAL professional before planning international travel.
