U.S. citizens can apply for their passport at one of the 27 domestic passport agencies or centers or at one of the 7,600 passport acceptance facilities located throughout the U.S. Citizens can also renew their passport conveniently through the mail. The key services offered are information and assistance in applying for, renewing and reporting a lost or stolen passport; the processing of applications and issuance of passports; and 24/7 availability of duty officers to assist customers with life and death emergencies.
