Emergency passport processing comes about due to many reasons including business trips and the need for added travel documents. You could be leaving the country in the coming few weeks and have just realized that you need a second passport. It could either be for safety reasons or as a way to aid you in processing visas while on your trip. Whatever the reason is for processing a second passport within a short timeframe, we at Travel Visa Pro have your back. We offer expedited processing, and we have agents who will help you through the process to ensure that it goes through without a hitch. What’s more, we will have your second passport delivered to your doorstep within a day.
We use emergency second passport requirements as guidelines in this processing. The first thing that we ask for is a valid passport. It should be unexpired, undamaged and unaltered. You should also ensure that it will not expire within the next one year. If this is not the case, you should first renew it, a process which we also expedite. We also require that you provide a statement with details as to why you need a second passport. Ensure that you jot down detailed and valid reasons as to your need as this is what the state department will use in its judgment. Immediate travel plans are of the essence when it comes to an expedition. In this way, we can prove that there is a need for urgency in the matter. You can provide us with documents such as travel itineraries, letters from your boss or other such records to prove the same.
Other emergency second passport requirements include two recent passport photos, two signed letters of authorization and two DS 82 forms. We will then take on the submission, owing to the powers conferred to us by the letters of approval, and we will deliver your second passport to you in 24 hours.
