Passport offices in California are located in local post offices, City Clerk and County Clerk offices, as well as some public libraries. Most of the passport application acceptance facilities require an appointment, so you must call before visiting the center. A new passport application is processed within 4 to 6 weeks. However, you can request expedited service to reduce the processing time to 2 to 3 weeks. Passport applicants who are unable to personally visit a passport office can authorize a third party to submit the application and required documents for them.

Note: Due to Covid-19 outbreak, delays in mailing are impacting passport processing. The official processing time of Department of State begins when applications are received at a passport agency or center instead of when you mail the application or apply at a local acceptance facility. Standard service may take from 7 to 10 weeks, excluding deliver time.
Whereas expedited passport service takes between 4 and 6 weeks. This doesn’t include mailing times on the front and back end.
You can make two types of appointments with regional passport agenceis: Life-or-Death Emergency Service and Urgent Travel Service.
