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?

  1. 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

  2. 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
  3. 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.  To find the locations of all the US Embassies worldwide, visit this link:  US Embassies

  4. If you would like more information about passport agencies and all of their services, you can also call the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-4USA-PPT (1-877-487-2778).
