Status of your child’s application

We’re getting a high number of status requests. In some cases, it may take us longer than 3 days to process them.

Your child’s application status is usually available 10 business days after you submit it. If you applied in person at a Passport Program Office, the status is usually available in 5 business days.

You can also check the status of your application.

In most cases, we process these requests within 3 business days. If we get an unusually high number of requests in a short time, it may take us longer.

If you’ve already made a request, do not submit another one. Resubmitting may cause more delays.
