Status Check Online

How to Check the Status

Customers who have recently applied for a regular (tourist) U.S. passport and want to know the status of their application may do so by accessing the U.S. State Department’s Application Status page using a standard browser.

Customers can securely enter their last name, date of birth, and the last four digits of their social security number to receive information on the status of their application.

More about Status Updates: It may take up to 6 weeks from the day you submit your application until your status is “In Process.” During these 6 weeks, your application is delivered to a mail facility, your payment is processed, and your application is entered into the U.S. Department of State system. Even if your passport status update says, “Not Available,” your application and supporting documents are safely on their way to the U.S. Department of State. Check online for your passport status.
