Hayward Passport Offices – Where to Submit a Passport Application in Hayward, California

Alameda County fourteen (14) post offices are some of your options for renewal or first-time passport applicants.  Some agents will take your documents, and verify their accuracy before sending them to the Federal agency responsible for issuing US passports. In  Hayward City, there are a post office and a city clerk’s office that offer the same services.

With all the choices, the process becomes comfortable and less stressful. Some of these post offices also offer to take your photos, for a fee, if you haven’t done so already. Post offices generally provide two types of processing. The regular mode is the most common option most people select. The other option is expedited processing. You choose one of the options that best fit your passport application needs.

Hayward City & Alameda County Passport Office Services

Routine Service

Routine or standard service is the best choice when there is no urgency for your new passport. The process typically takes 4-6 weeks, but can sometimes take longer when there is a significant volume of applications received by the processing center. Another delaying factor is when the region has a severe weather storm. A third influential factor is errors in the documents. You can check the status of your application by visiting our website for more information on how to do so.

Expedited Service

Expedited service is for anyone who needs a passport in a rush. If you have an emergency that demands you to travel internationally sooner than four weeks, you can submit correct and valid documents to get approval for this process. An example of credible evidence of travel is your itinerary, which displays travel date and times. Without proof, you cannot use expedited service. Once approved, you can get your new passport in 2-3 weeks. This service is not guaranteed if there is a severe storm in the region. If you choose to use the rush processing, it will cost more than routine processing.

Same Day Service

There may come a time when you need a passport the same day. If you do, you can contact the National Passport Center to get an interview at a Regional Passport Agency. Not every State has a Passport Agency but will be given an appointment at the nearest one. In California, there are three agencies, and they are Los Angeles Passport Agency, San Francisco Passport Agency, and San Diego Passport Agency.

If you reside in California or a neighboring state that does not have an agency, you can visit any of the three choices if you have an appointment. Without an assigned date, you will not be seen by an agent.

Other Acceptance Facilities

When considering the facility of your choice, be mindful that it may be closed on Federal holidays, the hours of operation may conflict with your busy schedule, and if you have a disability, can the facility accommodate your disability?
