Expedited passport renewal

Recommended Posts

Husband's passport expired in April 2018.  Got a call from a business friend in Mexico wanting him to travel there THIS WEEKEND (the 19th).

Anyone have experience getting an expedited passport renewal?  Advice?

If he can get an appointment at a passport agency tomorrow with his ticket, he can get a passport the next day with a $60 extra fee.

We've done this a couple of times because the waiting room at our passport agency is much more sensory friendly than the line at the post office for our sons. They're super efficient.

There are agents who will do all the legwork for you, if you don't live near an office or can't get an appointment.  They charge a few hundred dollars.  For us, that was easier than going and doing all the waiting ourselves.

They will need proof of travel in the next two weeks, though.

Like Chiguerre said, see if there is any passport agency within reasonable driving distance.  If you can get an appointment it's better but anyways just get there before it opens as there will be a line!  Take all the documentation needed and the airline ticket (without they won't do anything).  You should get the new passport within 6 hours.  We did it whenw e realized that our youngest son's passport was expiring and we were due to fly in two days.  You'd think that people who travel as often as we do would catch on but....
