Lieutenant Governor Osbert E. Potter Advises Public of Longer Wait Times for Passport Applicants

 

 

Lieutenant Governor Osbert E. Potter advises the public that the Passport Acceptance Facility has increased the timeframe for passport processing by two weeks (from 4-6 weeks to 6-8 weeks) due to the large volume of applicants. In order to avoid paying for expedited service, persons seeking to apply for a passport are strongly encouraged to come in to the Passport Office and apply early.

 

The passport application process is currently at its peak season. The Regional Office located in Miami, has reported large volumes of applications nationwide, including applications from the Virgin Islands, which has impacted the processing time. The Passport Office apologizes for any inconveniences which may occur.

 

For more information, contact the Passport Office at 340-774-4024 in St. Thomas and 340-773-6449 in St. Croix.
