Checking the Status of Your Application
The Houston Passport Agency will be CLOSED until further notice due to recent hurricane damage. To reschedule an appointment for a later date or at a different passport agency, please contact the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778.
Currently, it is taking 5-7 days for passport applications to be tracked online. Please allow at least that time before checking the status of your application.
To check the status of your application online you will need:
- Your last name, including suffixes without punctuations except the hyphen, (for example: Jones III, Patton Jr, Jackson-Smith, O Brien, Mc Queen, Varela Garcia),
- Date of birth in the following format: MM/DD/YYYY, and
- The last four digits of your Social Security Number.
Note: For security reasons, we recommend that you close your browser after you have finished accessing your passport application status.
You may also contact the National Passport Information Center if you have any questions regarding your application or other general passport questions.
