What to Expect:
Mail times vary and delays have been significant. Plan ahead.
We suggest you:
More about Status Updates: It may take up to 6 weeks from the day you submit your application until your status is “In Process.” During these 6 weeks, your application is delivered to a mail facility, your payment is processed, and your application is entered into the National Passport Center system. Even if your passport status update says, “Not Available,” your application and supporting documents are safely on their way to us. Check online for your passport status.
Use Self-Service Tools Online: The National Passport Center call center is experiencing extremely high call volumes with longer-than-usual wait times. You can get your questions answered immediately by using one of the self-service tools available on our site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. What you see online is the same information that call center representatives can share with you by phone.
Planning to Travel? Apply Early! Apply at least six months before planned travel. Due to limited availability for urgent travel appointments, the National Passport Center cannot guarantee you can receive in-person service at a passport agency or center. They are prioritizing customers with life-or-death emergencies. The National Passport Center do not charge a fee to make an appointment. Visit the Passport Agency and Center page to learn more.
Renew By Mail: Adults with 10-year passports can renew them by mail instead of appearing in person.
The passport window is located in the lobby of the City of King City Hall Building at 15300 SW 116th Ave.

Apply Early: Because of increases in COVID-19 cases and local health conditions, we have an extremely limited number for in-person services if you are traveling in the next 72 hours (3 business days). Some agencies and centers can only assist customers with life-or-death emergencies. Other agencies and centers may also offer an extremely limited number of appointments if you have urgent travel in the next 72 hours (3 business days) for reasons other than a life-or-death emergency.
