Contrary to several news articles, the U.S. Passport office is still accepting passport applications by mail. Late last month the Passport Office issued a statement which caused a lot of confusion.

In-person & expedited applications limited

For now, the Passport Office has limited in person applications and expedited applications to those with a “qualified life-or death emergency” or who need a passport for immediate international travel within 72 hours, new applications and renewals can still be mailed in. Plus, many in-person passport application acceptance offices such as libraries, clerks of courthouses, and some post offices are not accepting applications due to the coronavirus.

However, certain U.S. Post Offices as well as third party companies, are still accepting new and renewal applications.​ Most of the remaining Post Office locations require an appointment to be scheduled in advance.

Mail-in applications still being accepted

There is no change for mail-in applications. They are still being accepted and processed. This is the best method for a passport renewal.

Processing times slower

The Passport Office has advised that processing times will be longer than the standard 6 – 8 weeks.
