Checking the Status of Your Passport Application

You can check the status of your passport application online. Currently, it is taking 5-7 business days from the time you submit your application for your information to be entered into the U.S. Department of State's system. You can link to the U.S. Department of State’s tracking system by using their main information link (see Resources on the right) or click here. You will be asked to read and agree to the terms of use, and then enter your last name, date of birth and last four digits of your social security number.
