Rush Passport Tips for the Honolulu Passport Agency
“This is a government agency? Really? They behave like a first-class expensive retail operation…” – Yelp Reviewer
No one enjoys travel troubles. The Honolulu Passport Agency helps avoid any passport emergencies. The Honolulu Passport Agency only deals with urgent/emergency services if you are traveling in 2 weeks or less. For travelers with non-urgent passport needs, you can visit your post office or county clerk for routine processing.
The Honolulu Passport Agency requires an appointment for expedited passport services so you will have to call the National Scheduling Center in order to set up an appointment. Please call 1-877-487-2778. Please note this agency does not have their own phone number, so if you call any other number for this agency you are calling a separate post office or business that offers general passport services.
