Canadian in the United States
The table below shows the standard passport processing times. Processing times only start once we have a complete and accurate application and do not include delivery time.
|Complete application submitted||Processing time (excludes delivery time or drop-off day)|
|By mail or courier (from the US or Canada)||20 business days|
|In person at a Passport Canada office||10 business days|
|In person at a passport receiving agent ||20 business days|
Processing times may change depending on the volume of applications received and are not guaranteed. Complexity of routine verifications and security checks may lead to longer processing times.
If you require a passport in exceptional circumstances, contact the nearest Government of Canada office in the United States.
