Receiving your new passport

You should allow at least six weeks to receive your new passport.  Passports are despatched by FedEx according to the costs in the table above.  We can send up to 3 passports to one address using one FedEx fee. 

If you prefer, you can provide a prepaid letter-sized envelope with the courier company of your choice, such as UPS or FedEx, but please note:

  • Washington, Houston and New York do not accept pre-paid UPS courier envelopes at this time.  
  • We do not send passports via the US Postal Service. 
  • You must use a service that requires a signature on delivery. We will not use your courier envelope if it allows a delivery driver to leave your package unattended.
