How to Get an Expedited US Passport
Are you the type of traveler to put things off until the last minute, like checking your travel documents months after you booked your flight, but only a day or two before your schedule departure? Do you need to know how to get an expedited passport so you make your flight and continue on with your business trip?
How to get an expedited passport
Most travelers know that it’s possible to apply for passports in three different ways: in person at an official passport agency; through a trusted third-party agency like Travel Visa Pro; sending an application through the mail directly to the US State Department.
The problem with the last method is obvious: even if you were to send your passport renewal application as quickly as the mail allowed, the processing time would be out of your hands. Similarly for the first – getting an expedited passport is possible in person at an official agency in the US, but limited staff or a backlog of applications can lead to delays. Providing proof of travel within the month can get you an expedited passport in 2-3 weeks, but anything faster than that is at the discretion of officials and usually limited to life or death emergencies.
