|Before visiting a foreign country, you should ensure that all your travel concerns are addressed. Here are a few of the most common questions my office receives that deal with passports:
HOW CAN I RENEW MY EXISTING PASSPORT?
If you already have a passport that is not damaged, was issued in the past 15 years, was received after your 16th birthday, and has your same name, you can apply for a passport renewal by mail.
For more information feel free to visit the U.S. Department of State renew passport page.
I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NORMAL SIX WEEK PROCESSING TIME OF MY APPLICATION. CAN I REQUEST AN EXPEDITE?
Yes. For an additional fee, you can request expedite processing which normally takes two weeks.
For more information feel free to visit the U.S. Department of State's "How to Get Your Passport in a Hurry" page.
