What Documents is Needed to show Proof of Emergency Travel?
Question: I am traveling in a few days and I intend on visiting my regional passport agency in Washington D.C. I understand that I need to present proof of emergency travel to get the passport in just a few days which I need. What kind of proof is necessary?
Answer: Travel agents, agencies, and internet travel services provide an itinerary when you purchase tickets. This is usually on their letterhead or if printed from an internet site shows the issuing site. Hence, it is similar to a boarding pass for the flight. This is all you need as proof of travel. Of course be sure to bring your own identification, proof of citizenship and all other required documentation such as:
- Complete Passport Application DS-11
- Submit Proof of Citizenship.
- Provide Proof of Identity.
- Provide one Passport Photo
- Passport Fee
- Photocopy of ID
Note, appointments are required and can be made by calling 1-877-487-2778. Also, there will be an expedite fee of $60 in addition to the regular applications fees.
Passports are typically available in 8 business days, however; if your travel plans are in less than 8 days you can ask for “will call” service which allows you to pick up your passport in 24-48 hours,
