One of the first steps in planning a trip abroad is making sure that the details of your passport are in order. If you are applying for a new passport, renewing the one you already have, or needing to add on some extra passport pages, you may have to visit a passport office. But how tdo you find out where the passport office is?
- Many passport services can be completed without actually visiting a passport agency. There are over 7,000 such locations inside the United States that offer passport services including: providing the forms needed to register for a new passport or to renew a passport, allowing replacement of your damaged passport, and reporting a stolen or lost passport. Many of the 7,000 Passport Acceptance Facilities are located inside of US Postal Offices. Visit this link to search for an acceptance facility near you: Passport Acceptance Facilities
- Passport agencies are necessary to visit if you are traveling soon and need a passport right away (in less than two weeks). To find the phone numbers, addresses, and individual websites of all passport agencies in the United States, visit this link: Passport Agencies
- If you are traveling or living abroad, you may need to visit the US Embassy inside the country you're currently in. At the embassy, a variety of services are available to US Citizens, including passport renewal, addition of extra passport pages, and replacing a lost or stolen passport.
