If you are traveling soon and need your passport quickly, you can expedite your application. Expedited service is an additional $60 for the government fee. Routine processing is 4-6 weeks or longer. Expediting through the post office will provide you 2-3 week service. If you need it faster and you can get an appointment at a Regional Passport Agency, you may be able to get it as fast as 24 hours. If you do not live near a Regional Passport Agency or cannot get an appointment, you can hire a Registered Passport Expediting Service to get your passport as fast as 24 hours if necessary.
