Default Website for Checking Passport Status

Here's where you can check on the status of your passport:

https://passportstatus.state.gov/opss/OPSS_Status_i.asp

You enter your last name, birth date and SSN last 4 numbers.

I applied for mine last Saturday and here was today's status:

Thank you for submitting your passport application!
Your application has been received and is being processed.
Your passport application locator number is xxxxxxxxx.
When you applied, you requested Expedite Service and Routine Delivery of your passport. Passport Agencies use Priority Mail.
You should receive your passport within 4 weeks from the date you applied. However, if you are traveling within 2 weeks and have not received your passport, please contact the National Passport Information Center.

My daughter and I applied for ours 2/26 and they are still not located on this website. Said it could take 6 weeks before it shows a status. So if one doesn't find theirs, this may be why.

Yes, thanks for adding that - for those that didn't request expedited service, it may take 2 months or more to see your status on the site. But onc eyou do, you cna check it every week or two to see if the expected date of receipt has changed. There is such a huge number of people who travel that now need passports that everyone at the post office the day I was there had planned for expedited service, even if their trip was 4 months away, like mine was.

Don't stress it may not take as long as the site showed. My wife applied for expedited service on March 21st for her and my daughter and they arrived this morning March 30, only 9 days later. One thing may be that my wife's passport was a renewal, but my daughters was brand new. So I guess anything can happen. Good luck

When I checked on the xpediated service it was about $200 Ea. Is that what you paid?

My wife paid $142.00 for herself, that's $127.00 for the good old state department and $15.00 for the post office. My infant daughter's cost $127.00 total, $112.00 to state department and $15.00 for post office. My wife's passport was a renewal... This was expediated service.... It took only 9 days to get both. We live in the Boston area so I can't speak for other places, maybe its slower.
