How to Find a Passport Office

Where is the Nearest Passport Office?

By

Why might you need to know where to find a passport office? Because you can get passports rushed if you're leaving the USA within two weeks, and you have to do that at a passport office. (More than two weeks until departure? Don't go to the passport office... learn more about how to expedite a passport.) So, where's the nearest passport office? Here is the list:

Why You May Need to Find a Passport Office

Most US citizens don't have passports: if you're among those without one and suddenly decide to leave the country for, say, spring break in Mexico, you will need one quickly because the USA's WHTI dictates that US citizens must have passports to re-enter the US from all foreign countries under most circumstances.

And if you need a passport in under two weeks, you will have to go to a passport office. Not a big deal (aside from getting there): I've done it, and not only was there almost no one else there, but it was quick and easy, and the government staff was perfectly nice (as compared to, say, the TSA). If you are leaving the country soon enough to need a passport now, then bon voyage!
