Travelers who have not applied for passports should plan at the least, 10 to 12 weeks for standard passport processing and two to three weeks for expedited processing.

This is an increase over our earlier ten-week turnaround time.

Applying as far in advance as possible is always the best advice, and not needing to expedite saves money.
