Obtaining or Renewing a United States Passport
The City of Plantation is a Passport Acceptance Facility. This means that we accept applications for new passports or renewals that must be done in person. We do not make passports at this location. It takes approximately 4-6 weeks for your new passport to arrive via US Priority Mail in your mailbox. There is the option (for an additional fee) of expediting, which will speed the arrival to 2-3 weeks. If you are traveling in 14 days or less, you must make an appointment with the Miami Passport Agency; call (877)487-2778 for details on what they require.
Passport renewal is usually done by mail, not through a processing office. You may renew by mail if your old passport is undamaged, was issued within the last 15 years and you were over 16 years old at the time of issue. If you do not meet these requirements you will need to come in person to a Passport Acceptance Facility or a Passport Agency.
Please call our office at (954)797-2236 for questions or to schedule an appointment for passport processing.
