Why do passports take up to 6 weeks to process?
It's not the State Department's fault. In 1992, the Passport Service was funded for and processed a little over 3.2 million passports. Nowadays, more people are traveling internationally and this year the same office with roughly the same funding is expected to process over 7 million passports. This number has been increasing at an annual rate of over 10% per annum. Sheer volume alone does not allow the Passport Service to process the applications quickly, let alone within a week or two - a service many of our customers demand.
