Mississippi Passport Offices – Where to submit your passport application in Mississippi

Applying for a passport at any of Mississippi Passport Offices can be less of a challenge if you follow all their directions correctly. These acceptance facilities have certified agents who will assist you with the process. Some places do require an appointment, so make sure you call before going.

Mississippi Passport Offices are located all over the state. The most convenient place you will find one is in the post office. Other offices are in courthouses, county clerk’s offices, and public libraries. Each location accepts passport applications but does not process them there. That is why you receive your new document in the mail from the processing center and not from the place that accepts your application.

The standard processing period is 4-6 weeks. Some sites do offer expedited service. With this service, you can get a passport in about 2-3 weeks. The fees are more if you choose expedited service. Here is a list of some acceptance facility in some cities across Mississippi.

Expedited Passport Service in Mississippi

Expedited service is for individuals who need a passport but cannot wait 4-6 weeks to get it. Before you can use this service, you must show proof of travel. If you are traveling in 2 or 3 weeks and have an itinerary with the departure date, this is proof of travel. Since your trip is not urgent and you do not need to leave right away, you can get a passport in this short time. It is not wise to wait until the last minute to apply for any document because the processing fees will be higher in comparison to the standard processing time.

Another expedited service is getting a passport in 24 hours. In this case, an emergency is the only reason this is possible. Again, you must show documented proof that an emergency exists. An emergency can be a family member is ill, was in an accident, or has passed away, and your presence is required as soon as possible. A passport agency is the only agency authorized to give a passport on such short notice.

Passport agencies are in some states across the country. To get an interview with one, you must first call the National Passport Center at (877) 487-2778. You will also know if one is in your state or the nearest one from where you live. Most agencies are in Federal Buildings; therefore, they close on Federal Holidays. Unfortunately, there is no passport agency in Mississippi, but a couple is in neighboring states. Here are their locations and operational hours.

REAL ID Act of 2005

The REAL ID Act of 2005 will affect commuters who use their ID cards as identification at airports to fly domestic. This law establishes that ID cards, both the state-issued ID card and driver’s license, must have some minimum security standards displayed on them. The country, including its territories, must implement these security features so that TSA accepts ID cards at airports. Noncompliant ID card users must use an alternative document when they go to the airport. TSA has a list of such documents on their website. Here are a few from the list on the site.

  • U.S. passport
  • U.S. passport card
  • DHS trusted traveler cards (Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, FAST)
  • U.S. military ID (active duty or retired military and their dependents, and DoD civilians)
  • Permanent resident card
  • HSPD-12 PIV card

If you currently have a valid passport, you can use it in place of your driver’s license or state-issued ID card if the state in which you live is not compliant with the law. Currently, Mississippi is compliant with the law. Therefore, all state-issued ID cards and driver’s licenses have the security features and can be used at any airport in the US.
