Time Needed to Process Applications:

  • At the Denton, Carrollton, Cross Roads, and Lewisville locations passport application cannot be processed after 4:15pm Monday-Friday.
  • Wait times vary depending on the traffic at each location. There tends to be an increased amount of traffic during afternoon hours at locations and on days that local school districts are on holiday (Spring Break, Winter Break, Summer Break, and any other school district observed holidays).
    • Due to the unusually large volume of Passport customers at the Carrollton location, a cut off time is necessary in order to provide the best service possible. We apologize for this inconvenience and recommend arriving as early as possible to avoid delays.
