The National Passport Information Center (NPIC) is available to assist the public via phone or email to provide information about the passport process, or to assist with a customer’s in-process passport application.Also serving US citizens are approximately 7,300 conveniently located passport acceptance facilities nationwide.

It is through these facilities and their passport acceptance agents, that the Department of State is able to provide quality service to their customers most efficiently and effectively.
