Rush Service For U.S. Passport & Passport Cards
Expedited Passport services are available, which can reduce the standard processing time from 4-6 weeks to 3-4 weeks. If you need to travel in less than 10-12 working days, you must appear in person at a U.S. Passport Agency with proof of travel (eg: airline ticket, Itinerary and/or travel confirmation).
