U.S. Passport Acceptance Office Facility

The Center for International Education is a designated Passport Application Acceptance Facility serving all U.S. citizens. The CIE Passport Office is a full-service passport office that accepts U.S. Passport applications for children and adults, and provides customer assistance with passport questions. We do not process passport renewals and will be happy to answer questions about the passport renewal process.  Stop by our office to get the passport application forms and ask questions, we are happy to assist.  Please note that we are not available for a walk-in same day service.  Appointment is required with at least 24 hour notice. 

Updated Processing Time for Routine Service –
Effective September 23, 2021

As of September 23, 2021 routine service can take up to 16 weeks from the day an application is submitted to the day a new passport is received. Expedited service (for an additional $60) can take up to 12 weeks from the day an application is submitted to the day a new passport is received. These door-to-door timeframes include both processing times and mailing times on the front and back end.

For customers who want their passport in less than 16 weeks, acceptance agents recommend expedited service at the time of application.
