Obtaining a US Passport
To obtain a US passport, you may apply at any passport office (see chart on
following pages) or at one of the several thousand federal or state courts or
US post offices authorized to accept passport applications. For your first
passport, you must apply in person.
: Not every post office ac-
cepts passport applications; it's a service usually
offered at the main branches in a city.
We can't stress enough the importance of applying for a passport early. The
heaviest demand period is January through August (because of summer
travel), with September through December being the speediest period.
Even during the latter, however, you should allow at least eight weeks for
your passport application to be processed.
To obtain a passport, first get a passport application (DSP-11) from your lo-
cal passport office or post office that handles passport applications. Do not
sign the application. You'll also find passport applications and information
online at http://travel.state.gov/passport_services.html.
