How fast can I get a passport?
How fast can you get a US passport? With Travel Visa Pro’s Emergency Passport service, we can process a passport renewal or a new application within eight hours. If you come in to our offices that morning, you’ll be able to get your passport by the end of the business day. That’s a fast passport service!
The process to renew a passport quickly is remarkably simple with Travel Visa Pro. Whether you have plenty of time before your flight or need your application completed in a hurry, our travel experts can help. If you’re traveling within one or two days, we offer a Next Day Passport service for $349. Our Urgent Passport service will deliver your passport within 2-3 business days for $229. Of course, we understand that some travelers come to us for emergencies; if you need your passport renewal processed within 8 hours, Travel Visa Pro can assist with our Emergency Passport service for $499. On the other hand, if you plan on leaving the country with more than a few weeks’ notice, our Budget Passport service starts at $89.
If you’re getting your first US passport or renewing one, make sure you understand which applications and documents to bring to our offices to ensure a quick turnaround for your passport. First-time applicants or those who haven’t renewed their passport in 15 years need to provide form DS-11, proof of US citizenship in the form of a birth certificate, your ID, a check for $110 made out to the US Department of State, evidence of immediate travel, two original and signed passport authorization forms, and two passport-sized photos. Just a friendly reminder that as of November 2016, no glasses may be worn for passport pictures. If you need your passport processed with expedited service, please include a check for $170.
Are you renewing your passport? The requirements are similar to those above, but you’ll need form DS-82 instead of DS-11. If you have trouble with applications and want to leave the complexities of travel to us, try our Concierge Service. A Travel Visa Pro team member will be available to you with personal attention every step of the application process. Our representative will call you to go over all the requirements, pricing, and processing time to ensure that everything meets your needs. Follow up emails and calls will be made in a reasonable amount of time to ensure everything is clear. Upon receipt, we will call you to confirm all the documents have arrived safely and notify you of the estimated completion time.

Whether it’s processed in 8 hours or 15 days, your new passport should reflect travel that best suits your needs. Passport books come with 28 or 52 pages, good for travel to all international destinations. Passport cards – only $30 – are mainly used for land or sea crossings between Canada and Mexico. Because new pages are no longer allowed to be added to your existing passport as of January 2016, the cost is the same whether you’d prefer using your passport for annual vacations (28 pages might be best) or regular business travel (52 pages, with 44 pages available for stamps and visas).
