Emergency Passports

If you have urgent need of travel and there is insufficient time in which to process a full-validity U.S passport, you may apply for an emergency, limited-validity U.S. passport.  You may also apply for an emergency passport if your application for a full-validity passport is still pending and you have urgent travel within the next 2 business days.

Note: Many countries have passport validity requirements. Before traveling we recommend you visit the Department of State website at https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/before-you-go.html to ensure that your passport is valid for travel to all countries you will visit.
