The National Passport Information Center (NPIC) is not offering expedited service at this time.

Local passport agencies and centers, if open, are only able to assist customers who need a passport in the next 72 hours (3 business days) for a life-or-death emergency. Customers must make an appointment for life-or-death emergency service by contacting the NPIC and cannot walk in to passport agencies or centers.

Customers who apply at an acceptance facility or renew through the mail will still experience delays before receiving their passport. The NPIC anticipates a return to a normal processing times this Fall.

Customers can check the status of their application online at or by calling NPIC at 1-877-487-2778.

Passport appointments can be made at the Ridgefield Post Office. 
The Ridgefield Library is not able to process passports at this time. We hope to resume this service in the near future.  Check the Library’s website for further updates.
