Passport Application Status Check

You may check the status of your passport application after four weeks from the date you sent your passport application to us using the Department of State’s U.S. Passport Application Status online application.

Once you’re logged-in to check your application, here are the typical status results you’ll see with an explanation of what they mean:

  • Not Available: Your application is on its way to the passport acceptance facility in the U.S.
  • In Process: Your application is being processed.
  • Approved: Your application has been reviewed and a new passport is being printed.
  • Mailed: Your new passport is being sent to the US Embassy in Korea. Please note that shipping time from the printing facility in the United States to you in Korea is typically two weeks. Delivery times may vary.
