The Department of State issues state-of-the-art passports incorporating a photo-digitized image and other enhanced security features to all American citizens, whether they apply in the US or overseas.  The Department of State achieves this goal by issuing all full-validity passports at a domestic U.S. passport facility.  The processing time to receive a full validity passport from the US issuing facility is approximately two to three weeks.  American citizens are encouraged to apply early when renewing expiring passports. In most cases, a full validity passport will be issued for the following lengths of time: Minor under 16 years of age – 5 Year passports; 16 years of age and older – 10 year passports.
