Updated Passport Processing Times

Updated May 2022

The United States Department of State has updated passport processing times and travelers could experience delays. For routine processing, allow 8-11 weeks and for expedited processing, allow 5-7 weeks.

This means students interested in studying abroad in 2023 should apply for a passport now! Students who live in or near Lubbock are encouraged to utilize the Passport Office at the TTU Office of International Affairs – conveniently located right on campus!
