The City of Lake Forest Park is a passport application acceptance facility for the U.S. Department of State. Our trained passport agents are happy to answer any questions you have regarding your application for a U.S. passport.
We offer appointments for processing and submitting the DS-11 application (no walk-in service offered). We schedule appointments a continuous 2 weeks out. Schedule an appointment online.
Appointments fill up quickly! We recommend checking online frequently for availability or openings due to cancellations. We also have a small number of week out appointments released each Monday and Friday. To schedule one of these openings, call City Hall at 206-368-5440.
Thinking about international travel? Plan ahead! Do you have a passport? When does your passport expire? It’s a good idea to check the country information on the U.S. Department of State’s website to see if there are any passport validity requirements for the country you wish to visit.
Current processing times for new and renewal applications are 10 to 13 weeks for routine processing and 7 to 9 weeks for expedited processing (additional fee required). Processing times begin the day the Department of State receives your application at a passport agency or center, not the day you mail your application or apply at a local acceptance facility.
If you have urgent or emergency travel or plan to travel within 7 to 9 weeks, you will need to contact the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778 to schedule an appointment with the Seattle Passport Agency. For more information, visit travel.state.gov.
