Emergency United States passports are issued to those applicants who have immediate travel and cannot wait to receive a regular full-validity passport before traveling.
To request for an emergency passport, bear in mind that we have limited staffing and some other restrictions due to the ongoing pandemic, only real emergencies will be considered for this category of service (e.g.: medical care, family emergency, etc..).
WARNING: False statements made knowingly and willfully in passport applications, including affidavits or other documents submitted to support this application, are punishable by fine and/or imprisonment under U.S. law including the provisions of 18 U.S.C. 1001, 18 U.S.C. 1542, and/or 18 U.S.C. 1621.
