How Can I get an Appointment with the Regional Passport Agency?
Question: My husband and I are traveling overseas in the next 16 days and I realized I needed a passport and had not yet gotten one. I read that I can get an appointment with the Regional Passport Agency and get what is called expedited service. I also understand that I have to bring “proof of travel” with me to get my passport quickly. What must I bring to establish proof of travel?
Answer: Yes, you are right. The Passport Agency allows for “expedited Service” which will issue the passport within 7-8 business days and allow you to pick up the passport (will call) so you can avoid time-consuming mail delivery delays. Under situations of “extreme emergency” a passport can be issued the same day. Proof of travel is very simple. Your travel agent or even an internet service will provide a travel itinerary on their letterhead or under the internet firms website name. You should be sure to carefully book using the names of the individuals traveling and use that itinerary as proof of travel. Naturally bring all of the required personal documentation you will need for the regular.
- Photo ID
- Evidence of U.S. Citizenship (birth certificate)
- A recent passport photo
- Any proof of name changes if that applies (such as marriage license)
