Our 3-5 day processing option is limited by reservation only. We are only able to submit One (1) passport a day. Due to the constraints of this service we have created a log that shows you when the NEXT OPENING is set up for. Please DO NOT schedule a 3-5 day slot until you have reviewed that the next open slot serves your traveling need.

How does this work? Once you have scheduled an appointment with our office, your name will be automatically assigned to a submission date on our log below. Your assigned date is when your passport will be submitted to the Department of State for processing. Once your passport has been submitted and is "In Process", your status will change below next to your name. Please allow 3-5 business days for your passport to process from this date. When your passport is finished your name will be removed off the list. Please note: Your appointment date with our office must be before your assigned date below. A perfect example would be you have an appointment with our office on "January 1" and your submission date is "January 8". Please look at our next submission date below and book your appointment accordingly. All documents and forms must be in our hands before your assigned date. If you have any questions please feel free to call us at 713-961-3131, M-F 9:30am-2pm.
