Getting a Passport in Philadelphia
The Philadelphia Passport Agency isn't quite as busy as the New York or Washington DC offices, nor are they as strict. That allows us to serve clients from other areas, using the Philadelphia Agency. We're located right in the city and can pick up and deliver documents anywhere in town. Our office is open by appointment only, so please call for availability.

In Philly, we have everything you need to get a same day passport, or passport renewal fast.
What you should know about how to get a passport in Philadelphia:
This Regional Passport Agency is a little better to deal with than some of the other locations, however, here is no way to just walk in and ask them questions. Call us right away if you think you need help.
Like all Regional Agencies Philadelphia has tight restrictions on the number of processing slots that are allocated to expediters. This means that expediter slots can fill up, especially early in the week and around federal holidays, which is another reason to call right away.
The Agency requires a printed travel itinerary or a business letter detailing the need for an expedited application. They do not require "confirmed travel," meaning you don't have to buy an airline ticket prior to getting your new passport.
We submit applications for processing at the Philadelphia Passport Agency at 9:00AM.
If your application type requires approval at a local acceptance facility first (most do), you may have a hard time getting that done the morning of your application. There is one nearby location that is open 8:00AM - 5:45PM Mon-Sat:
Chestnut Street Main Post Office
3000 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104
