How do I expedite my passport?

by Debbi
(Warren, Ohio United States)

Question: I am a passport holder and the expiration of this passport is coming very soon; in fact in a week or so. I am a Flight Attendant with Continental Airlines. I fly regularly into Toronto, Montreal, and other cities in Canada. With this position, I cannot be without it, therefore I am hesitant to submit my passport for renewal. Is there another course of action I can take?


Answer: You can expedite your passport as quickly as the same day. There are two options. One, you can appear at a regional passport agency and submit the application yourself. Two, you can authorize a private expediting service to submit your application.

To renew your passport, you are required to submit application form DS-82, your most current passport and one passport photo taken within the last 6 months.
