Once you have applied for your US passport and submitted all of the required documents, you will need to wait for your passport to be processed. The average processing time for a passport is 6-8 weeks, but it can take longer if there is a backlog. You can check the status of your application online at the US State Department website. To do this, you will need your application number, which can be found on your receipt. Once your passport has been mailed, you will receive an email or text notification with the tracking number. You can then use this number to track the delivery of your passport. If you have not received your passport within 8 weeks, you should contact the National Passport Information Center for help.
