    Long pick-up lines for passport will-call. Be sure to be here before 3PM, if you have a 3-4PM pick-up. Great service, if you have all your documents prepared - walk in - no appt needed for 10th Flr.

    be nice to the passport officers, it's a tedious and thankless job and they have to sit under fluorescent lights for 8 hours. smile and the whole process will be easier!

    If you have an appt. Tell the metal detector guy or else he will make you wait on the non-appt line which is massive! Be prepared (fill out all forms) the ppl behind the window are Nasty!

    Surprisingly efficient despite what they say. I had an appointment but waited almost no time to hand in my paperwork and the next day picking up less than ten minutes. Oh and get the 52 pgs always

    This place is great! I couldn't check in until 15 mins before my appt, but then I only waited 2 mins upstairs and was done before my appt time! Cost $13 less than expected & will have passport today!

    this is the place to come when you need a passport on the SAME DAY. even though the website says otherwise, they do take walk-ins (but prioritize appts). expect to wait 4+ hours in the non-appt line.

    Must go through security, first line gives you a ticket number. Main waiting room is on 10th floor. Wasn't crowded before 8am. Took about an hour. Have forms and all documentations ready

    Delightfully impress with the efficiency of this agency. Show up at 6, wait in line, magical same-day passport processing. And all with a smile.

    Showed up @7am, the day of my 8:30 scheduled appt, went thru A (appt only) line 2x- 2nd time just at my appt time as per the clerk. Earlier come earlier served wasn't so but was out at 8:45 regardless

    Arrive early: 6-630am. It's first come first serve. Make any appointment time beforehand; it'll put you in the shorter line once you get inside.

    This place is an efficient machine despite dealing with everybody's drama. Didn't mind waiting for same day processing. They are truly effective solution providers.

    Make an appointment and show up early so you will be in line A which is like an express lane - and get it done within an hour. Will get it mailed instead of following day pick-up.

    No line at 3:00pm Wednesday. Smooth experience. Xenophobic security officer at the X-Ray machine, who yelled at an Asian guy to "put his wallet in the X-ray scanner just like he would in Beijing."

    You can get a passport the same day, expect to wait 4+ hours, there are photo stores on the block, a place to print and a Starbucks. Bring your patience.
  • Banana Nut Bread O.
    Monday at 9am, waiting area is 70 percent empty and only 2 people away from calling my number. Must have chosen the perfect day to come!

    I was in and out in an hour get there 15 minutes early and have your documents ready. You can't bring snacks in BTW

    Watch hilarity ensue as you clearly hear the officers giving directions of how to go through detectors and them screaming at most who don't listen.

    I had a different experience. I was asked to confirm my appt. prior to being accepted upstairs. They validated my conf. number in their system.

    If you can take time off work, come late morning during the week. Tuesday, 11 AM and only a 15 minute wait. #winning

    Get here when it opens at 7:30am and its pretty painless even without an appointment.

    I was actually surprised by the relatively quick service. The workers were very helpful and knowledgeable. Made a stressful situation easy to handle. I really went expecting a nightmare, but walked aw

    Like the fact you don't have to wait an eternity to drop your documents like other federal bureau

    No appointment? No problem! They have a separate line for walk-ins. Come early when they open at 7:30 am and avoid the ridiculous wait time.

    Honestly Line B for people without appointments was far shorter. The guy behind me in line outside at 7:30 got to the check-in desk at least 20 minutes before I did in line A. Bring reading material.

    the worst place to be in the summer because it's crammed with babies and children getting their first passports before visiting their grandparents - though if you like kids - a long wait but lovely!

    Use your cell phone while waiting, it's a kinda F- U to all the overly friendly employees and wanna be TSA agents!
  • Latoya D.
    Had an appointment for 8. Got in line around 6:45. I was out by 8:45. Only reason it took as long was because I left my confirmation number at home. Friendly staff.

    Appointments are pure fiction intended to prevent them from being overwhelmed. Don't make an appointment, just show up early & get in line with everyone else.

    When you pick up: Your pick-up time matters. Show up exactly at or just before it, but don't wait for them to call your name.

    Your appointment let's you cut the line, but the time itself means nothing! Come early

    If you have an emergency, no need to waste money on private passport expediters. Come here w/your old passport, debit card & printed itinerary & they will renew your passport before your flight.

    There's a store right next door that sells passport pictures, money orders, prints itineraries ... The works! So if you forgot something, no sweat.

    Be thankful you only need to get a passport every 10 years. The line is a good 4 hour wait.

    Leaving in less than a week? Don't call. Get in here by 6am. You will get a expedited passport in less than 24hrs

    If at all possible, plan ahead & avoid. For anyone in a last minute crunch, this place sucks but you can get a passport on the same day if traveling in <24 hours. Just note It will take you all day.

    Didn't have an appointment and lined up when the office opened at 7:30AM. Took one hour to wait in line, fill out the form and wait to be called. Headed back at 12 to get my passport!

    Make an appointment. Security makes you not only turn on your computer, but put in a password and click around. Joy.

    Second tip: spend the money on an expediting service. This place is a tax payer cesspool filled with screaming babies.

    Security is like an airport, no food or beverages allowed so eat up before you get there, appointments are meaningless so arrive early and bring plenty to read. Don't forget headphones. It sucks.

    Pickup time 10-4pm is BS. My bf was kind enough to pick it up for me (I signed permission on a receipt he had to bring with him). He showed up at 3:45 & still waited 1 1/2 hrs #fail

    Banning small children and babies in here would probably keep them off airplanes. WIN!!
