Apply Now to Get Ahead of the Surge and Avoid Delays
In 2007, the Department of State experienced an unprecedented surge in passport applications, issuing over 18 million passports as a result of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI). Nearly ten years later, those passports are beginning to expire, and we have been experiencing increased demand for passport renewals. This increase in demand may lead to longer processing times, so we encourage you to apply for your passport well in advance of your travel plans.
Please click here for information on how to renew your passport by mail (some restrictions apply), or see below for more detailed information on how to apply for your passport by appointment in Marseille.
